I have a question - What differences does a dual core processor have compared to using 2 single core processors?

Hmmm... Where to start... Speed being the first... With a dual core you have almost max speed (since they're on one chip) as opposed to 2 single cores which would have other circuitry and software to run them... Another would be with using 2 single cores would probably mean you would need a server board, 2 CPU's, server OS... And other hardware &/or software.

You won't notice much difference between a single core and dual core until you start multi-tasking, then you will notice a big difference.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
