Intel Core 2 Duo E7500
Released January, 2009
The Pros:High clock - ideal for gaming / programs that rely on individual core speed over core count. Affordable price. Easily overclocks over 4GHz.
The Cons:Re brand soon. Poor stock CPU cooler. Does not get set to the proper stock speed out of the box on all motherboards.
The Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 is a 2.93 GHz, 1066MHz FSB processor with 3MB Cache and falls in the lower half of Intel's line of Core 2 Duo Processors.

high clock - ideal for gaming / programs that rely on individual core speed over core count
easily overclocks over 4GHz
fast enough for the vast majority of consumers, even enthusiasts (when overclocked)
built on the latest 45nm fabrication process - faster speeds, lower energy usage, cooler temperatures
Some versions support virtualization (VT-x). Check SPEC on Intel page.
does not get set to the proper stock speed out of the box on all motherboards
amd athlon 64 x2 7550 can beat it
no support for virtualization (VT-x)
