    From the article:

    "The new Core Duo T2700 is a 2.33GHz dual-core 65nm Yonah-based CPU, specifically targeted for high end notebooks and desktop replacement (DTR) devices. The processor is already shipping at some retail outlets, and should start showing up in high-end notebooks very soon. The previous high end model, the 2.16GHz T2600, was reduced to $423 on June 4th, but neither the T2600 nor T2700 will receive another discount until the Merom launch later this year. The T2700 will sell for $637 in quantities of 1,000.

    Furthermore, Intel is also discretely rolling out its Core Duo U2500 ultra-low voltage (ULV) CPU. The U2500 is currently the only dual-core ULV product in Intel's arsenal until the 1.06GHz U7500 Merom processor launches with Santa Rosa in Q2'07. The U2500 is a 1.2GHz Yonah processor with 2MB L2 cache and a 533MHz FSB. The U2500 recently received some attention on DailyTech as it is the only x86 dual-core processor to ship with a 9W maximum TDP envelope. The CPU consumes less than 1W during normal operation. The U2500 will sell for $289 per chip in quantities of 1,000."

    These chips have been announced well ahead of WWDC, I wonder if we'll see the announcement of MacBook Pro updates to utilize the 2.33 chips to widen the gap between the MacBook Pro's and MacBooks.

    The U2500 makes me wonder if we'll see the 12" PowerBook replacement as well.
