    "Processor 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo"

    Did apple screw up, or should it say "Duo"?

    What is the difference anyway? I couldnt really find a straight answer about it...

    I just want to make sure I got what I paid for.

    Same for me..

    I bought an "Extreme" as well and my about this mac says Duo also. I think the Extreme applies to the configuration and not the chip? However, I could be wrong so maybe someone with more authority on the subject may know better.

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    Well how do I know for sure? I have 2 iMacs sitting in front of me that both say Intel Core 2 Duo and one definitely isnt an "Extreme" because they didnt offer "Extreme" models when I bought the first one.

    I think because the only 2.8 chip is the Extreme chip. So if it says 2.8, it can't be anything but the Extreme.
    I think Extreme is just marketing talk and not an actual specification, but I could be wrong.

    The extreme chip is of the same variety as the Core 2 Duo, thus the chip is listed as a Core 2 Duo.
