    Core Duo 2 offers 3 different advantages over regular Core duo. For one Core duo is 32 bit and Core duo 2 is 64 bit. Core duo 2 CPU's are 20% faster per clock. They also have more cache 4MB's vs 2MB's.

    Be aware some of the Core 2 Duo processors only have 2MB cache (the slowest 2 or 3 of the bunch).

    Core 2 Duo can be dropped into a Core 1 slot, assuming BIOS will read the former. The notebook Core 2 is supposed to be a lot more energy efficient (which translates to less heat generated) as well as what others have mentioned, about bit-processing and cache

    That's only two advantages. The amount of cache isn't an advantage in itself. It just contributes to overall performance, which you already mentioned.
