    Acoording to Fudzilla: Penryn 45 mobile dual core

    Intel plans to release its X9000 2.8GHz Extreme Edition mobile processor in mid February and you should get it in selected notebooks in late February or March.

    Could this be the reason apple is waiting?! Low end MBP's 2.5ghz, midrange 2.6ghz, highend BTO 2,8ghz :D I sure hope so!

    Yeah this will be for the iMac. Just like the current 2.8 model does. Would be nice to have in the lappy, but not enough room for sufficient cooling.

    An extreme mobile processor from Intel is such a waste. The entire point of them is that they allow overclocking more easily by having an unlocked multiplier. OEM manufacturers (Dell, Apple, IBM, HP, ect) lock their BIOS's (in the case of Apple, they lock the EFI) so that you can't overclock them.
