That should be easily testable by checking out non-Apple Core Duo laptops. (We can do that now, we are no longer limited to comparing against other Apple products ;^) )

If Lenovos and Sonys and Dells don't make the noise, it probably isn't because Apple is getting bad chips.

It would also be worth seeing if Core Duo Macs make the same whine when running Windows.
