This is the first Core Duo we have reviewed as part of our complete mobile review process. The scores are in line with what we expected. It should be noted that the Winstone 2004 test don't show the full benefit of a dual core processor. We only use this benchmark as we phase into the new mobile benchmark suite, so you can see the performance comparison to older systems.

Though even in this older benchmark, you can see that the 1.83GHz Duo pulls ahead of the Dothan 2.13GHz.
