Ok.. I never thought a few hundred Mhz and a shrunken die would make that much of a difference, but when I took out the 1.83 Core duo and bought the T7200 2.0 engineering sample Merom, I was quite surprised how much of a difference I noticed! Since I'm using a 7950GTX my video card isn't much of a bottleneck (cept for games like Crysis) and watching cut scenes and movies and everything in general seems so much smoother with this new CPU. If anyone is considering upgrading, it is worth it if you have a decent GPU. This leads me to the conclusion that the CPU plays a much larger role in laptops than I originally thought.
