    Default Desktop vs. Laptop Core 2 Duo?

    I'm curious to know the difference between the desktop (annendale and conroe) processors and the laptop series Core 2 duo processors? How do they compare in terms of performance, multitasking and overclockability?

    The mobile CPU's use Socket M while desktops use LGA775.

    Thanks for the info. I'm a complete newbie, so I'm wondering.. do those kinds of stats make the mobile c2d procs good or bad in the notebook world? Do they get the same kind of hype and rave reviews as their desktop counterparts?

    All depends on what you plan on doing with your system, but the desktop will be faster due to the fact that it is not running on battery therefore no cpu throttling.

    Seems that you're now in luck as Intel has just released their E4xxx desktop (Allendale) CPU's (the difference between Allendale and Conroe cores are that the former only has 2MB L2 cache and it can't support virtualization).

    You may also like to read a review on the E4300.

    Thanks for the article, Wayout44 - it was very informative. That new e4300 looks pretty good.
