Default Toshiba processor help

Im buying a Toshiba L555-S7001 from Rent-A-Center Home .... Its specs are
Toshiba - 17" Widescreen with Intel Pentium processor T4400
• Intel Pentium processor T4400
• 17" Widescreen TruBrite backlit TFT LCD display
• 4GB OF RAM WITH 250GB Hard Drive
• Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

What i need to know is if the Intel Pentium Processor T4400 is a Dual-Core Processor. On the site it only says Intel Pentium Processor, but when i search teh laptop name/model on google it calls the laptop Toshiba Satellite L555-S7001, not sure if its the same thing or not, but it says it has a dual core processor on google.

Intel® Pentium® Processor T4400 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) Socket P with SPEC Code(s) SLGJL

According to Intel it is a dual core.

I don't know what Rent-A-Center is going to charge you, but you can get that laptop for $498 at Walmart:
Walmart.com: Toshiba Satellite 17.3" L555-S7001 Laptop PC with Intel Pentium T4400 Processor & Windows 7 Home Premium: Computers

It only has Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, so don't expect to do any kind of gaming on it.

I dont have that much money off-hand so i have to rent-to-own one for now, and thats the best one they have on their website, i dont want to play any major games on it, probably just Heroes of Newerth, should work, but all its stuff is upgradable right?

Only the RAM and hard drive, mate.

A laptop is not like a desktop. It is built very specifically and parts can't be switched out (not very easily anyway). Things like optical drives and keyboards are easy enough to replace, as is a cracked screen, but graphics chips are built into the motherboard and the thermal solution is only enough to cool the chip it came with and nothing more.

Do you know of any other sites that you can Rent-to-Own by chance? Without credit approval.
