    I've had the duallie 1.8 upgrade for about a year now and it runs totally stably. The only exception is on extremely hot days.....the proc can freeze up. However, on those days, I use a fan to...

    I frequently sleep my upgraded Quicksilver and have never had an issue with it with my dual 1.8 7447. I can't comment on the 2.0 specifically but suspect your experience would be similar.

    Just checking in with a periodic update. I've had absolutely no issues after five months with my dual 1.8 GHz. The only thing I'm sorry about is that I didn't wait for the price drop. Oh well!

    I'd go for the 1.6. In fact, if the dual 1.6 had been out when I was looking for a dual upgrade, I might have strongly considered that over the dual 1.8 I bought. :) (I know you're not looking for...
