    yes lots of people use dual cores. And there are single core, multi core, mobile, and desktop, and then every combination of them.

    Never really hear about people running them frequently, yet they seem like it'd be a good idea too even though the power isn't really needed. I'm going with this one and an ABIT mobo. Due to wednesday!

    Just make sure the cpu you buy is actually the moble chip (35w-ish for intel and amd) and not the desktop versions which are like 60w-70w.
