    Right. I've been searching around and haven't really found any recent threads on this, so thought I'd start a new one.

    When is the actual timeframe for quad-core release in mobile processors? And will it be after, or before the release of Core i7 as a mainstream thing in mobile processors?

    At least 2010 before quadcore gets into macbooks, any of them.

    Do you think they'll also put them into MacBooks, or do you think the MacBooks will remain with Core i7 Duo?

    I doubt they'd have Quad core MB's. Maybe a couple years after when the MBP's are 8 core and the Mac Pro is 16 core :D

    Maybe they'd hold off first? Or what do the rest of you think?

    Ah but they have the same number of cores in the MBP and MB now...
