This is totally for fun. The current Intel roadmap for Nehalem mobile processors has the quad core Clarksfield with low clock speeds (~1/6-2.0 GHz) coming out in Q3 of 2009. The dual core Arrandale processors will be out in Q4 of 2009 with clock speeds comparable to the current Penryn processors. http://www.appleinsider.com/article...ella_with_quad_core_notebook_chips_in_q3.html http://www.tomshardware.com/news/core-i7-macbook-apple,7001.html Which one do you think Apple will throw into the MBP first? The slow quad core, or the fast dual core? Debate power requirements, user requirements, core vs. clock speed, etc.
