Intel After a few delays and tons of rumors, Intel's fifth generation notebook platform has arrived. Centrino 2, previously known as Montevina, comes with with it a line of new Core 2 Duo processors, upgraded graphics and Wi-Fi, and DDR3 RAM. One of the first notebooks to be released with Centrino 2 is Lenovo's newest ThinkPad, the X200. This is the update to the X61 which not only had all the new Centrino gear, but moves to a widescreen display.

Yeah, email and surfing don't require much juice. Compiling, rendering and multimedia eat processor, though. Basically, dual cores are a total waste for, um, reading osnews.com, but kick ass when you're trying to crush a dvd into an avi and compile open office while surfing youtube.
