I am sure most places like dell, and HP already have the cpu's just cant sell the laptos they are in until intel releases them??

I would have thought you could pre order one with a c2d or somethin

s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:

Merom is the core name, like Conroe, but it will be called Core 2 Duo.
