    Sorry if i got this wrong but as far as i see the top end CPU is the Core i7, running at 2.66ghz and is a dual core (not 4 cores), right?

    Isn't that a step backwards compared the previous 3ghz c2d cpu that is also dual-core?

    It's dual core but due new technologies such as Nehalem architecture, 32nm manufacturing process, Turbo boost and Hyper-Threading, it's up to 30% faster

    Just read the 'Performance' section in the Macbook Pro info page.

    Newer CPU tech is always more efficient per clock cycle then the previous.
