Good news everyone, Looks like Intel is moving really fast with its cpu roadmap. The Merom/Conroe line could be ready to go by Q3 2006!!! Check this out: http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=24788 It's going to be so nice having a fairly reliable roadmap to follow from now on instead of stagnation (Moto/Ibm) Cheers! P.S. Notice from the piece that Yonah's ready as we speak.... I also saw an article from a Japanese site that shows a prototype notebook with a version of it ..... will look for link. I wouldn't be surprised if Steve J. surprises us with anouncements before the end of THIS year!
