Core 2 Duo MacBooks?

Interest in developing plug-ins for Aperture has exceeded Apple's expectations following the company's decision to allow third-party developers to extend the application.... Microsoft's 2007 Office suite has gone gold, and company officials noted today that the worldwide business availability of the 2007 Office suite, Vista, and Exchange Server 2007 is still scheduled for November 30th.... eWEEK labs has tested pre-RTM code for Office 2007, revealing some significant changes in the software that creates a big decision for IT managers....

    NOT Core 3 Duo

    Read the specs:

    Processor = Intel Core Duo 2 GHz ( Dual-Core )

    Nowhere (except the heading) does it indicate these are Core 2 Duos.

    more..NOT Core 2 Duo

    Powered by the Intel Core Duo, built from ultratough polycarbonate, just 1.08 inches thin - MacBook combines performance and portability like never before.

    Built upon the revolutionary Intel Core Duo - with two processor cores on a single chip - MacBook leaves other consumer notebooks in the dust. It performs up to five times faster than the previous generation iBook without compromising on size or style.

    It's a typo

    If they were updated, they'd have the exact same 3GB maximum RAM as the Core 2 Duo iMacs and MacBook Pros. This lists "2GB" as the maximum.

    How lame

    And again, a completely unnecessary piece of news on MacNN. So Office 2007 is going gold, great. Maybe they should mention that this is the PC version. Because, you know, this is supposed to be a Mac-related news site.

    Not again

    I hear a lot of people saying " has listed as coming out on "., like a lot of online retailers, lists products it believes will be coming out. Unlike a lot of online retailers, it can be a little more optimistic about release dates/forthcoming products, than is perhaps wise.

    Okay, so it's been pointed out this is probably a typo anyway, but please don't take listings for unreleased products on as a sign of anything except what think will happen...
