Well both chip makers Intel and AMD have brought out dual core chips with the expected performance gains that those chips bring. Just how many of you have actually upgraded to such a chip though? I will likely get one sooner then later as my "clunky" P4 2.4 Ghz is seemingly dated in comparison. Only seems a year and a bit ago I bought it. Wait a minute! It only was a year ago and a bit :-). Seems depressing when you think how fast your new computer becomes outdated.
