I hope you remember the disappointment that Intel had when Dell announced that will start using Opteron CPU into their servers.
But it seems that despite all that, Intel still loves Dell.
Are you somehow interested in purchasing a Inspiron E1705? It only costs $1199. A special price for special customers. But I’m not here to sell you a notebook. No sir.
I’m here to tell you about the CPUs that are powering Inspiron E1705. You can choose between single-core processor or dual-core processor.
If you choose single core, the lowest processor displayed is T1350. It is actually a Yonah based core with 2MB of L2 cache and it is clocked at 1.83GHz. With a 533MHz, it is a bit unusual for such a CPU.
Let’s move forward and we get to choose a dual-core CPU. You will get to choose a T2250, 1.73GHz clocked dual-core CPU with 533MHz FSB.
What looks interesting is that Yonah was designed for 667MHz, not 533MHz, these being the older type of memory and original Yonah CPU don’t support them.
More, on Intel’s website you can’t find them. So what is the explanation? There can be only one. Intel developed these CPU specially for DELL.
And where else can you get a dual-core notebook with only $1199? I’m sure Intel couldn’t afford to lose such a precious partner as Dell and made everything it could to keep it by its side. Even if they started using the competition’s products.
