Something about saying future proof in a computer tech related discussion seems odd to me... hmmm.
Heres my 2c
I honestly wouldnt get a dual core unless you multi task.
And i hate hearing dual core is future proof b/c there will be more and more dual core programs coming out. When those programs come out that utilize dual cores, will the operating frequency be outdated? perhaps and then its not future proof.
