Anandtech has a review up today of the recently announced Intel Core Duo technology behind the Yonah processor. 

Today's article is very much a look at Yonah and Centrino Duo as they were intended to be viewed - as members of a mobile society.  The primary point of comparison here today will be Dothan and the previous generation Centrino.  While we would like to compare to AMD's Turion 64, we only had a very limited time with the notebooks in this review and we could not get a Turion 6

Ars Technica reviews the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, a strange mix of mobile beasties.  It's a mix of a laptop and a PDA, with wireless internet and reasonable media player.  At about 8 ounces, and more or less pocket sized (5.5in. x 3.1in x 0.7in), you can't get any more mobile, though you trade that mobility for power.

"The Nokia 770 measures 5.5in. x 3.1in x 0.7in and weighs in at a hair over 8 ounces. It also has

a 4.13in. LCD display, and what a display it is: 16-bit color at 800x480.
