    Intel has introduced its first set of mobile dual-core CPUs under the Celeron M branding. There are two models up for sale: T1700 and T1600, clocked at 1.83 GHz and 1.66 GHz respectively. These processors, based on the Core micro-architecture, have a shared L2 cache of 1 MB. These chips have a front-side bus speed of 667 MHz. Both these processors are derived from the 65nm silicon fabrication process, and come with rated TDP of 35W. The T1700 and T1600 are priced at US $86 and $80 respectively (in 1000 unit tray quantities), and are intended to be value offerings towards a segment of notebooks.

    I have recently been considering build options for a mini-server/NAS. I could buy a ready made NAS like Qnap, or linkstation, or similar, or build something using an Atom, like the Gigabyte GA-GC230D (single atom), MSI Wind Board 330 (dual core Atom), or MSI Fuzzy with a Intel Mobile CPU (socket P).

    NAS is great for a ready to go fileserver, but adding additional services or software is limited/difficult/time consuming.

    A single Atom system is possibly a bit underpowered if the mini-server is hit with two or more demands simultaneously.

    Dual Atom looks like a good performance fit at a great price. Mainboard AND CPU for EUR 110, BUT, nobody seems to stock them.

    Leaving the Core 2 mobile, which is by far the most versatile due to performance, but is a bit pricey due to the expensive CPUs. However, the dual core celerons are very interesting at these prices. Cool enough for passive cooling. Cheap enough to be competitive. Powerful enough to provide flexibility to the system.

    Hmm. Just might do it :pimp:

    Looks kind of expensive; considering I got a T7500 (2.2ghz, 4mb L2-Cache, 800mhz FSB, Merom-65nm Core) for 140$ 1 year ago on from a professional seller on ebay (ok, it's an ES, but still).

    What about those itx boards that are AM2? Grab a low wattage AMD chip for much cheaper than a mobile Core2.

    How are these any different than the T2300, etc.? My lappy had one (1.73GHz dual core with 1MB L2 cache, only 533MHz FSB though) before I threw in a T5750.... They were labeled pentium instead of Celeron but come on, you know it was a crippled C2D just like these are.

    I believe these can not change their multiplier; at leasts all celerons up until now couldn't; so no Intel Speedstep. If I'm right the Pentiums could actually lower the Multiplier for powersavings.

    Yeah you're right, I completely forgot about that while posting before.
