Core Solo vs Core Duo

I just bought a Toshiba with the core solo. Wanted the core duo but
the price difference was $200-300 depending on the brand.  Just
wondering...would it have been worth the extra money, assuming that
mostly it will be used for word processing, internet access,
entertainment (no serious gaming)?

Is there a significant difference in speed between the upper-end core
solo and the lower-end core duo?  Enquiring minds want to know!


Re: Core Solo vs Core Duo

Gaming is not much of an issue since most games don't use the second cpu.
The core duo will be significantly faster if multi-tasking. For your needs,
I would say that the core duo would probably not be worth the extra cost..

Heck you don't need anything better than a Celeron M for that.
