Intel have officially kicked off their new mobile Core 2 Duo processor lineup today, otherwise known as "Merom". Specs for the mobile versions are basically identical to the desktop models (which is definitely a good thing). Expect some blitzen' fast notebooks to surface in the near future from manufacturers such as Dell, Lenovo, Sony and more.
