Not sure why one would need this kind of power on a laptop (from a practical point of view), but if you do need it, then it seems like the new dual core laptops are just around the corner . Rumor has it that Dell is going to be releasing some in February next year and Toshiba in Q1. But if I was you, I would probably wait for a x64, instead of a dual-core on the laptop, but then thats me. :)
