The Core Duo refresh is a plus for those users seeking to streamline power consumption to get every drop of battery life from their machines. However consumers who are budget-conscious and don’t need the absolute “latest and greatest” should not feel the Core 2 Duo is a must. As a matter of fact, we should see a slight drop in prices for the “standard” Core Duo machines which adds up to a better overall value.
