    TDP does not have anything to do with power consumption, actually.

    TDP = Thermal Design Power. It is a number provided by chip manufacturers to let notebook/desktop ODMs know how much thermal energy a heatsink coupled with the chips needs to be able to dissipate in order to keep the chip running in its recommended temperature limits. That's it.

    Also, as noted, remember that the memory controller is now onboard the CPU, which adds to power consumption and results in a higher TDP. So we don't actually know at this point whether similarly-equipped Core 2 Duo and Core i3/i5 notebooks will compare in that regard. My thought is that there will be little difference.

    Does anyone know why Dell offers WWAN cards in the USA (Gobi 2) but not in any other markets for these new laptops (E6410/E6510)?

    Did you check the large business configuration options? They are more extensive than the small and medium business. If the option exists, phone so that you can get the configuration that you want, plus a discount.
