    So what are peoples estimates and expectations on Intel i5 based CPU's arriving in Macbooks soon?

    Core i5 (codenamed Lynnfield)[1] is an upcoming family of Intel desktop x86-64 microprocessors. It is scheduled to be released in the third quarter of 2009[2] using the Intel Nehalem microarchitecture and is a mainstream variant to the Intel Core i7 family.[2] Core i5 microprocessors will feature an integrated dual-channel DDR3 memory controller,[2] integrated PCI-Express graphics controller and Direct Media Interface controller for communication with Intel P55 (Ibexpeak) chipset.[3]

    Oh dear, nvidia wont like that.

    Please search - there are several Arrandale / Clarksfield threads already.

    If you're talking MB and MBA - why are you talking about
    Lynnfield) - which if you read what you'd cut from wiki
    then you'd see is an upcoming family of Intel desktop microprocessors.

    This thread is useless, as the i5 chips are desktop chips.
