What's the difference between an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T7600 and a T7600G?

I'm thinking about buying a Dell XPS M1710 notebook, and I need to choose between the two types of processors. What does the G stand for? It's almost $300 more.

    appears to be an unlocked version of the same processor. equivalent to the extreme version of the desktop processor, meaning you can overclock it more efficiently, and further. but i would be wary of overclocking notebooks due to their power supplies, ventilation, and the quality of the rest of the components.

    The "G" designates that it's an overclockable version of the T7600. Meaning that the frontside bus and core clocks are unlocked making it much easier to overclock.
