    the states for now
    Im not sure. But I would guess this is a desktop chip that would suck a lot more power than the Duo. So, even if it is faster you would be sacraficing battery life.

    Pentium D is based on the old, out of date, high clockrate, high power, low performance Netburst architecture. Pentium D at 2.66 GHz runs slower than Core Duo at 1.66 GHz, and it has no chance of ever fitting into a notebook are an iMac due to overheating.

    I'd rather have a Pentium II over Pentium D
