    More than likely. I'm not complaining since the new i3 would be plenty enough for me. :)

    I would like the CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads, but I've no doubt that that is going to be the $1000+ model.

    So do you guys think the "CPU whine" issue will be resolved with SB? I'm returning my new laptop (which has an Arrandale, i7 620m processor) and sticking with Core 2 Duo because of this issue.
