Default Running A Different Race...

It doesn't mean squat to a Sixpack with a Dell that a Conroe processor can overclock better than an X2, he isn't going to be doing that. If he's even aware of the IPC difference between the two, he'll just buy a 2.2GHz X2 rather than a 1.86GHz E6300. Odds are he won't, so he'll buy a 2GHz X2 if it's cheaper and be none the wiser for it.

actually, joe sixpack will look further than Mhz, even the least knowledgeable PC user now knows Mhz isn't everything, thanks to AMD, and that same logic will make him buy Core 2

Regular consumers won't know squat; they go for the lower price and higher whatever number on the box, 2 is better than 1.8

From the last commentary, older than 37 of age, one begins to think and act more conservatively; fast PCs or cars
