They're really just updates to the existing architecture - which is a good thing, since it means they've made tweaks without doing anything too risky. Grab one now if that's your thing.

Hey..I just got my C2D black 2ghz. Bumped the ram to 1.5 gb on my own.

Runs great. I'm streaming Carlos Mencia Not for the easily offended movie stored on my XP box ... sending a group email, widgets on the desktop running...surfing the web and downloading ...all right now as I post to you. No lag. No hesitation.

DONE!

There is a bit of heat...but not much. I'm in the 120F range.

120F is a hot summer's day in Nevada, I'd say - it'd be hot if that was the outside temperature, but it barely registers when it's inside a laptop.

Heat is definitely not an issue. Seen a high of about 65 celsius in 5 days of use.
