Low-cost "unofficial" Core Duo CPUs with 533MHz FSB

Dell is now offering Napa-based notebooks based on Intel's Core Duo T2250 and T2050 processors, which are not listed with the other T-series (Yonah) Core Duo mobile CPUs on Intel's pricing or product website pages. Dell is following Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer, Lenovo and Asustek Computer, which already offer Napa models featuring these CPUs. These "unofficial" CPUs use a 533MHz front-side bus (FSB), while the remainder of the T-series operate on a 667MHz FSB.

Dell has announced the Inspiron E1405 series, with the Intel Core Duo T2050 CPU (2M L2 cache, 1.60GHz, 533MHz FSB), a 14.1-inch widescreen display, 512MB of DDR2 SDRAM and 60GB of HDD memory. The new Napa model is priced at US$730, cheaper than US$1,100-1,300 for other dual-core Yonah models based on the T2300 Core Duo processor.
