I am not sure how the whole intel duo core works or that much about it.
According to CNET http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10442_7...5.html?tag=btn
they state the the amd dual core chips are better, cheaper for those that are building their own computers.
email me for further details
Sorry Willie, but you're a generation behind as far as Intel core 2
duo chips are concerned. Not that there is anything wrong with the AMD family, it's just that they have been surpassed by the new Intel family. On top of that the Mac Pro has two of these dual core chips which run 64 bits at up to 3GHz.
There are other dual Core 2 Duo based machines out from other manufacturers, but I prefer the Apple machine.
