3700+ right now. But when multithreaded apps become more popular the x2 3800+ will wopp it.

I'd go with B, as I have one and it is excellent.

I've also had an A and it seemed not-quite-as-fast, but then again I do a lot of multi-tasking.

B will be better soon enough. If you're going to get one or the other, get the 3800+.
