    I'm kinda pissed right now :mad: I got a ASUS G1 Notebook today, and it was advertized as such when I got it from this Retailer:

    http://www.arrowcomputers.com.au/productinfo.php?productid=467

    This clearly states Intel Core 2 Duo, However at the Asus site it gives this description:

    http://www.asus.com.au/products.aspx?l1=5&l2=74&l3=464&l4=0&model=1447&modelmenu=2

    Which clearly states Intel Centrino Duo

    Is there a Great difference between Intel Core 2 Duo and Intel Centrino Duo o_O And have I been ripped off, thinking I was getting Intel Core 2 Duo o_O Cause If I was some dudes are in for a Royal Ass Kicking in the Morning :cautious: and I'm taking it back Pronto :shifty:

    The Notebooks Specs read like this in the Wecome Center

    Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 CPU @ 2,00Ghx 2,00Ghz

    Im confused as to what to do, I bought it thinking it had the Specs shown in the first link. Should I return it o_O
    p.s Considering its Dual Core, It doesnt startup that flash either, Maybe 1 minute from cold boot, with a 20-30 sec delay at welcome screen o_O

    LoL. Relax. Centrinos are just the rebranding of Intel's laptop procs. It clearly states you're getting a 2.0 Centrino Dual Core..which is either T7200 or T7300 as they both run @ 2G. If I remember correctly, everything "new" on laptops including the Core Duo and Core 2 Duos are branded as Centrinos. So you're fine... And that's a slick lappie, you should enjoy it, many good reviews.

    eniqmah is correct, the Centrino chip is designed for laptops.

    I read up on it more thouroughly, and its a Smoking Hot Laptop/Notebook, whatever you chose to call it, and with Some **** removed that ASUS installed, it Blazes around like Smoke on the Water :cautious: Highly No! Lethally fast, even with the default partitioning into 2 parts C: The Vista OS and D: for the DATA Only :cool:
