    Single core
    ~1.8 Ghz
    ~80 GB
    ~512 MB DDR MEM
    ~built in bluetooth


    DUAL core
    ~1.6 Ghz
    ~100 GB
    ~1024 MB DDR Mem
    ~w/o bluetooth (but free dongle)

    same brand (Compaq),both with free bag

    difference is Price .Dual core is higher * around 4K

    so which do you prefer?

    TIA

    Depends on the application you will be running. Multi-threaded apps benefit more on duallies. But heck, at Php4K price diff, go for dual core.

    dual core na...or the core 2 duo pa if suddenly budget allows.

    stuff loads faster on a dual core running at a comparably lower GHz rating that a single core that has faster GHz rating.

    Core Duo ka nalang, +20 Gig HD, + 512MB RAM, + Extra processor so to speak ( ) for only 4K its a bargain.

    Medyo malapit na rin Kentsfield. Pero IMO, medyo overkill na yun for lappies.

    *BoEinG_747: anong dual core ba yan? Core Duo (Yonah) o Core 2 Duo (Merom)?

    Anyways, sa mems pa lang, panalo ka na doon sa pangalawa * Php4K price increase.
