Summary: This chip has great performance and if it had more L2 cache it would be labeled a Core2Duo. A Pentium Dual core such as this is simply a Core2Duo with half the L2-cache disabled. 90% of the time it will be pretty much just as quick as the equivalent MHz Core2Duo, though 100% of the time it will be a fraction of the cost. Uses less power and runs cooler than my old Celeron 585!
Summary: This is part of my purchases is an attempt to have a Blu-ray capable laptop for less money. The accessibility of the processor makes this job an easy fix for the moderate equipped computer geek. A 2Ghz. is suggested as sufficient for smooth Blu-ray playback, I decided to give this a try.
