The dual-core processors are the same kind of design but older brand. The core2duo's can achieve a much better processing rate at lower clock speeds (GHz) and consume less power that your regular dual-cores.
thus the cheaper price on dual-cores?
and there's the prefix 'T', 'U', 'P', 'LV', I understand that now P is the highest of them all? And considering the daily office use with light multimedia playback (DVDs and AVIs), dual-cores with bigger RAM will be sufficient?
