Quad-Core Mobile Processors

Intel's Quad-core Mobile Chip Coming Next Month:

"We're bringing quad-core to mobile in August," said Sujan Kamran, regional marketing manager for client platforms at Intel in Singapore. Kamran declined to disclose specifics of the quad-core chip, which will carry Intel's Core 2 Extreme moniker.

While the article argues that quad-core processors are more about bragging rights than any real increase in performance, I'd argue that if you're on the road more often than not and you use applications that can take advantage of multiple cores on a regular basis (like, say, most media applications) then a quad-core laptop is going to look pretty awesome.

I know I'm excited about quad-core MacBook Pros. Are you?
