I was helping my uncle look for a new computer and since I usually like Dells I decided to check out their site. Seems they aren't selling any core 2 quad systems anymore. I'm wondering why this is? Are the the new core 2 duo systems suppose to be superior to the quads just because they are a little faster? I mean, is 2 cores at 3.2 Ghz that much better than 4 cores at say 2.5 Ghz ?
I'm just wondering, what is the best thing to have hardware wise these days and what I should be looking for. When I got my system two years ago quad core seemed to be the way to go but now I'm not sure what's best out there.
