    The Centrino Duo (better known as Core Duo) are the previous generation CPUs and are usually less expensive. They can provide better value for money for people who do not need 64-bit capability and are roughly 10% slower at the same clock speed.

    I dont think we can assume a Centrino Duo to a Core Duo. Core 2 Duo's are also part of the Centrino Duo branding.

    What processor does the Centrino Duo model have? Centrino Duo refers to the overall platform which consists of Intel Core or Core 2 Duo's, intel chipset and intel wifi. Its more of a marketing term rather than a reference to the cpu in the system.

    Correct. My aunt's dv2000t has a T5600 and a Centrino Duo sticker affixed to it.

    Centrino duo label is given to any laptop that uses the Intel branded core duo processor(doesn't matter if it is core or core 2), intel integrated graphics, and intel wifi chip.

    Lol interesting to see so many people, including mods, getting this one wrong. But yeah, like zunq said, Centrino Duo is just a brand for an Intel Core CPU, Intel mobo chipset, and intel wifi card. I don't think it also includes the Intel integrated graphics however. It's like the Centrino label a few years back, which meant an Intel Pentium M CPU, Intel chipset, and an Intel wifi card.

    Budding, your laughing, I'm kicking myself for blowing it, but in all fairness miner nailed it. Also because of the way question was phrased, Centrino Duo is not a processor.

    Well, you can't really blame anyone but Intel for this stupid naming system - if it confuses us, then it will confuse the hell out of a normal consumer. For example, the Centrino Duo name has now been used twice - once for M sockets, and another for P sockets. Then they came up with Centrino Pro for 800 Mhz P sockets.
