Centrino Pro is here and you learn that Centrino Pro Plus is soon to arrive?
With the launch of Intel's new processor, Centrino Pro, I was wondering if it's even worth buying a laptop right now, if there is a potential to get better performance. This new processor promises better speeds with less energy use, which is geared towards the laptop market. I'm not an expert, so I'd recommend researching the issue:
The former article brings up the issue of price and how we?re not sure about the cost of Centrino Pro yet. The latter article says that this processor will be available in the second quarter of this year, so we should be seeing more of it soon. I talked with the manager of one of the big technology retailers and he said that the price of Core Duo?s have dropped over the past few months, but they haven?t heard anything about laptops with the new processors being sent in yet.
Should we wait for Centrino Pro, or stay content with the Core Duos?
