In the CPU section of the article you state: "Intel's Dothan core, used in the Pentium 4 Mobile processor, is simply astounding, with a thermal design power of between 3 and 21 watts."

The Dothan core is not used in the Pentium 4 Mobile processor. The Dothan core is used in the Pentium M processor (it is the successor to the original Banias core), the CPU at the heart of Intel's Centrino mobile platform. I know it's confusing, blame Stef Murky's counterpart at Intel.

    Robstafarian is absolutely right. I certainly meant to type "Pentium M" instead of "Pentium 4 Mobile"! The Pentium M is a very costly chip, and depending on the clock speed, can be even most costly than a P4M.
