Core 2 duo is much, much better. On benchmarks, they sometimes don't even bother comparing P4's to core 2 duo's.

From what I've heard, HT makes it think he has two cores, but it doesn't. It's still of course faster then a P4 with no HT, but definetly go with a core 2 duo.

core 2 duo outperforms the the P4 HT processors, even though it doesn't yet support HT. HT only improves performance when running software that is coded to take advantage of it, whereas the new core 2 duo improves PC performance regardless. It also produces much less heat than the P4 family, with the obvious potential for a quieter machine with fewer or slower-spinning cooling fans. Intel could not afford to release a new generation of processors if they didn't outperform the previous generation. They had already lost too much ground to AMD to make a fatal mistake like that.
