    Yes.

    Free :) It's a engineering sample, but VERY close to production.

    From a 1.5Ghz Solo, a BIIIG improvement. Haven't banged too hard on it, but the fan doesn't sound any louder.

    Replaced the 1.5GHz Core Solo processor with a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo "Merom" processor in my Mac Mini.

    T7200 means 2.0GHz, 667MHz bus, and 4meg L2 cache.
