Not sure what your looking for. I think your comparing dells? Too confusing to read through. I bought a studio 4 months ago and am very happy.

Dual core means it has two processing units. Quad core means it has four. Software that can take advantage of that will be twice as fast.

You didn't actually ask a question... you just listed a whole bunch of computer parts. Best ask a question.

Basicly I spoke with dell about this...They said that the processor I got was the newest processor available.

They said that the processor was threaded and it was like having 8 processors. That make any sense to you?

Maybe they are refering to Hyper Threading? And even then its not quite the same.

In todays computer world Quad core processors are where you want to go. Being that its a laptop i think you are limited to duo cores for now? i heard dell was coming out with a quad core work station laptop but not sure.

I have been totally mislead by Dell salespeople before so be careful what they tell you. Take it with a grain of salt.

I just peeked at your list a little close and noticed this:
"Studio XPS 435MT, Intel Core i7-940 processor(8MB L2 Cache 2.93GHz)"
looks like your comparing a XPS laptop to a studio XPS?

the one with the Intel Core i7-940 processor the studio XPS, that's the one you want. The older XPS has an older processor. You cant get quad core in a laptop yet....I think.

I can see that happening...lol I hope I wasn't mislead....That's why I was hoping to get a better understanding from guys like you.

The processor is the newest and fastest one they have (per my Dell rep) She said that it was threaded and it was like having 8 processors.

Sorry I bought two computers...One was a laptop and one was a studio or desktop.

Yes, the i7 does appear to the OS as if it has 8 processors - but it will not remarkably increase productivity of programs that do not process 'out of order' instructions like Photoshop. So far tests see only marginal speed increases between the i7's and current Extreme Intel CPUs.

That sucks I think I paid like 500 bucks for it too!!

Oh, well then yes the i7 chip is the newest and probably the fastest.

You can get a "studio XPS laptop" that has the i7 chip very soon. I would maybe send back the laptop and get one that has the i7 chip?? (if you want the newest latest and greatest) Not sure that you will really see much of a difference, both are very fast.

No i7 for laptops for another year I believe.
