The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.
TL-58:
In 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.9 GHz. The TL-58 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.
