I was sitting last night and my roommate asked me what kind of processor my mac had. I told him 2.16 Ghz, he then said that's kinda slow, I then told told him that it's actually 4.32 Ghz since it is dual core. He then went off trying to convince me that I really don't have two cores, My chip is named Intel Core 2 Duo for a reason! I told him that just because I have two cores does not necceraly mean it's twice as fast. He then tried to relate it to RAM... go figure. You know, that 1 GB is not 1000 MB, it's really 1024 MB, and that I don't actually get 2x 2.16= 4.32 Ghz it's more like 3 Ghz in total. I tried to show him, prove to him, explain to him, no dice. Tried to show him wiki, intel, apple, computing sites. nope he doesn't get it. If I am wrong, PLEASE tell me so I can apologize to him. If there is an app any shred of evidence that I am correct tell me show I can tell him. Any computer experts here?
