It has the intel dual core processor. It appears to be sufficient for my needs but is that technology to old?

It is a couple generations old, but is most likely more than sufficient for everyday laptop use. You have to step up to the 15" to get the newer (heheh, almost 1 generation old) Core i5 processor. http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs-compare.html amnotanoobie a b à CPUs February 16, 2011 1:42:49 AM If all you do is surf, watch videos, type documents, listen to music, etc Then yes, it's most likely "fast enough" for you.
