Default Core duo or core 2 duo?

I have been looking around for a high-performance processor for a laptop.
I have noticed that some of the laptops processors are decribed as.
"Intel Core 2 Duo" Or, "Intel Core Duo".
I'm pretty sure that both are Identical but I thought I should ask first, are both processors Conroe chips?

Edit: Seems they use the wording "Intel Core 2 Duo" when talking about a mobile version of the CPU. Power is not an obligation for me so i'm probably going to buy the non-mobile version.

No they are not identical, and both processors are not Conroe chip

Core 2 duo in laptops is code-named Merom

Core duo is code-named Yonah


Core 2 duo is the better processor overall
