After configuring an Inspiron 8600 today, I noticed the 705 was no longer the base processor, replaced by the 715. I was pleased to see a Dothan as a base processor after all these months.

|Intel Announces breakthrough in chips
SAN JOSE, California - Contradicting fears that the semiconductor industry's development pace is slowing, Intel Corp has announce a milestone in shrinking the size of transistors that will power its next generation chips.
The company said it has created a fully functional 70-megabit chip with transistor switches measuring 35nanometers - about 30 percent smaller than those found on today's chips.
By shrinking the size of the transistors and other features etched into the silicon, more of the tiny devices can be squeezed onto a single chip.
As a result, miroprocessors become more powerful and memory chips can store more data without growing in size.
Intel said products built wih its 65-nanometer process technology - a label that describes the average size of the minuscule chip features - are in track for delivery next year.
The company also developed "sleep transistors" that shut off electrical current to areas if a chip that are not being used.
Power consumption then drops - something that will decrease heat generation and help battery-powered devices last longer between charges - AP

I know I have the 1.6 Banias.
