5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Quick, 2.9GHz with TurboBoost. Uses a little less power than i7s. Runs cooler too - reason I got this, laptop was hotter than he** before the update. Anyhow, very quick and responsive, love the TurboBoost, love the reduced power consumption, and love the cooler temperatures.

Cons: Price? Well for the speed, not too bad a deal.

1 out of 5 eggsUnderperform

Pros: Will run Windows 7 64 bit, but at a price.

Cons: Very disappointed with this processor. In many ways, underperformed when compared with Pentium 2.8 single core. Not what I have expected from i5. Did not live up to its dual core expectations.

5 out of 5 eggsExellent CPU

Pros: I replaced my i3 380M with this i5 560M, and couldn't be happier!
It runs a few degrees C higher, 37C idle to 51C full load.
But it has turbo boost (3.2GHz), a huge + for me!
Plus it has new instruction sets, that the i3 380M didn't have,
and the video frequency is a bit higher.

Cons: To high of a price! $200.00 would be more like it!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: Pretty much the fastest i5 mobile CPU, besides the 580's turbo boost frequency. Supports virtualization and dont give off near as much heat as those i7's. It's too bad they dont get those quad cores down to 32nm!!

Cons: 2nd gen i5's are out already! :( None that I can really think of at this time other than this.

Other Thoughts: Put this in my Envy 14, which replaced a 430m i5, so it has a better turbo boost and supports new instructions and virtualization.
