Core 2 E7300 to come
Intel is reportedly set to release a second Wolfdale 45nm dual-core processor for the lower end of the market.
Intel plans to bring the new CPU on top of E7200 branded E7300 and this new CPU will work at 2.66GHz. It also comes with 1066MHz FSB support, 3MB cache, two core and two thread support and it stays at 65W TDP.
According to our source, the E7300 will come in just under €20 cheaper than Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 which is also clocked at 2.67GHz but with FSB 1333 and 6MB cache. Regardless, it's a cheap processor.

:crazy:Can anyone tell me the difference between 1080i and 1080p

1080i and 1080p are both High Definition display formats for HDTVs. 1080i and 1080p signals actually contain the same information. Both 1080i and 1080p represent a 1920x1080 pixel resolution (1,920 pixels across the screen by 1,080 pixels down the screen). The difference between 1080i and 1080p is in the way the signal is sent from a source component or displayed on an HDTV screen.

In 1080i each frame of video is sent or displayed in alternative fields. The fields in 1080i are composed of 540 rows of pixels or lines of pixels running from the top to the bottom of the screen, with the odd fields displayed first and the even fields displayed second. Together, both fields create a full frame, made up of all 1,080 pixel rows or lines, every 30th of a second.

In 1080p, each frame of video is sent or displayed progressively. This means that both the odd and even fields (all 1,080 pixel rows or pixel lines) that make up the full frame are displayed together. This results in a smoother looking image, with less motion artifacts and jagged edges.

Moved to a more appropriate area other than the introduction thread. I hope the above info helps :)

A slightly simpler way of putting it is 1080i supports 1080 still images, where as 1080p supports 1080 video.

Not 100% accurate as PV has shown. But an easy way to describe it.
