The whole processor thing confuses me. I received a laptop recently with a single "Intel Core i7-2677M Processor 1.8GHz", and shrugged my shoulder in disdane* because my 5 year-old desktop has a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ 2.4Ghz (Not incredible either, but the i7 has worse "numbers" to my non-hardware eyes).
Is a single Intel 1.8GHz i7 greater than a dual core 2.4GHz AMD processor?
*Not really, free is free, and I'm hoping to sell it. It's actually a pretty good laptop with a SSD and everything, but I'm a desktop user.
