根据最近的Intel财务报告，Intel的Core 2 Duo Mobile芯片正在开始向制造商出货。最近的AppleInsider报道指出，Intel可能有将发售Merom的正式日期移至下周一——七月23日，以便和Core 2 Duo Desktop（Conroe/扣肉！）的发布保持一致。即便如此，这些新产品恐怕还要到八月才可以买到。
根据预定，Merom将取代MacBook Pro中的Core Duo"Yonah"。Apple可能使用2.0, 2.16, 2.33GHz的Merom CPU武装自己的MacBook Pro产品线。相对于现在的2MB L2缓存，新产品升级为4MB，且都有667MHz的前端总线。
Mac Rumors: Merom/Core 2 Duo (Mobile) Now Shipping?: "Intel is shipping Core 2 Duo Mobile chips (Merom) to manufacturers, according to recent Intel financial report. A recent AppleInsider story had indicated that Intel may have plans to move up Merom's formal launch to next Monday, July 23rd, to coincide with the Core 2 Duo Desktop variant ('Conroe') launch. Despite the move, availablility at the time was still not expected until August.
Merom is expected to replace Core Duo 'Yonah' CPUs found in the MacBook Pro. Apple could use the 2.0, 2.16, or the 2.33 GHz variants of Merom in its MacBook Pro line, each of which sport 4 MB of L2 Cache (up from 2 MB in current MacBook Pros) and have a 667 MHz frontside bus."
