re: But that isn't the only issue at play. At 14W, a Conroe processor is likely going to need active cooling at idle. A 65nm AMD processor won't.

Boy, talk about the dumbest post of the day...

Maybe you haven't noticed, but all notebooks (and other systems) run power loads at some time (sure you have). That requires cooling, so it's not a matter of just sitting there at 14W. Not to mention, CMW consumes less power than AMD at load. Not to mention that farms of new CMW systems are whisper quiet. Talk about reaching for an advantage... Sheesh!
