Yes a Core 2 Duo would normally suffice, the biggest improvements for most people come from the amount of RAM and the speed of the storage (SSD). Any dual-core should be enough, even the dual 1.4GHz in the MBA. If you encode movies though, you will see a noticeable difference as well as making idvd projects. Mostly though, it doesn't matter.
