Today is January 23, 2006, making it less than 20 days since the Core Duo
was officially released, and T-minus ?? days until Core Solo is officially
released. Yet, if we turn to Intel's Errata documentation for the Core Duo
and Core Solo lines, we already find 34 known problems. That averages out to
an error-and-a-half found every day since the chips were released.

Still, the Core Duo and Core Solo processors are just out of the gates, and
this high number of immediate errata should leave one a little chilled, I'd
say. Releasing a brand new processor with 34 known errors seems almost
criminal to me, especially with some of the more obnoxious ones highlighted
If you're thinking about buying a Core Duo-based machine, you might want to
stop by Intel's documentation department and pick up the latest errata
updates, which are promised to be released on the following dates: February
15, March 15, April 19, May 17, June 14, July 19, August 16, September 13,
October 18, November 15, December 13.
