Why is it that most commercial stores, and other computer shops sell
only the DUAL CORE? Why not try to sell the more powerful CPU ' s which is the QUAD CORE ? Why is it that most people,individual prefer the Dual Core instead of Quad Core? Why is it that Dual Core is more ' Marketable ' than the more powerful Quad Core?

Well...your initial assertion isn't true...both types of processors are readily available.

As for your marketing question...my simple answer is that...some persons actually realize they have no need for a "quad-core processor" if it's going to cost them more money than a "dual-core processor", especially so since many consumers got along perfectly well without such for so many years.

As I see it, quad-core is a niche market today...until something more powerful comes along and quad-core becomes "yesterday's news."

Isn't that what happened to dual-core processors and systems?
