Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E6600

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 0.9 GHz Around 2.8x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.49 GHz vs 0.9 GHz More than 3.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.45 GHz vs 0.9 GHz More than 3.8x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2006 vs Apr, 2004 Release date over 2 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
