About USB 3.0

The USB 3.0 specification guarantees an increased performance of 10 times compared to the capabilities of the current USB 2.0, providing a bandwidth of 600 MB/s second.
Performance comparison: Transfer of 25GB HD movie:
USB 1.1: 9.3 hours
USB 2.0: 13.9 minutes
USB 3.0: 70 seconds
The new 3.0 connectors and cables will be physically and functionally compatible with hardware from the older specs. Of course, you won’t be able to maximize your bandwidth unless you’re using a USB 3.0 cable with Superspeed devices and ports, but at least plugging a 3.0 cable into a 2.0 port won’t blow up your PC.

Currently there are no OS available in the market which supports USB 3.0 and even the upcoming version of Windows i.e. Windows 7 will not support USB 3.0 though Microsoft may add support for it later on via Windows Update

Summary: There are other, more in-depth reviews on here that dive deeply into the functionality of this printer, so I won't go there. Instead I'll tell you that this multi-function printer is a great deal right now because it is being discontinued (probably for a newer version), so if ... Expand full review

Different Intel Processors

The confusion between Intel core 2 duo and Intel dual core primarily resulted from a stupid naming convention by Intel. 2 and dual may be synonyms in English but that does not make Intel core 2 duo vs Intel dual core any more similar. The similarity of names makes even many computer geeks confused when asked to do a comparison of Intel core 2 duo and Intel dual core.

Intel Pentium D CPU comprises of two dies, each containing a single core residing next to each other on a multi-chip module package. The Pentium D consumes a relatively high power. It runs very hot and is not a good OverClocker.

Intel Dual Core is the first dual-core CPU from Intel. The Dual core makes use of two cores on a single die i.e it has two chips in one package. It solves the problem of overheating of Intel Pentium D without compromising on the performance.

Intel Core 2 Duo processors are the next gen processors from Intel. It is developed with a new Architecture called Core. The new architecture of Intel core2 duo makes it a lot better processor that runs cool. Most importantly the Intel core2 duo is a super over clocker.
I hope the comparison between Intel core2 duo and Intel dual core has made the decission of choosing a better processor for your laptop comparatively easier. Let me know if you still have any concerns in the comments and I shall answer them after more research.

The Intel Atom is a low-powered processor with a single core. Its prime advantage is that it uses less power than the standard Core 2 Duo chip and hence enhances battery life. It is normally found in Netbooks as well as small form factor desktops.
A Core 2 Duo processor, on the other hand, has two processing cores for better performance, though it sucks up much more power than its Atom equivalent.
