and we are now far afield, but I'm asking anyway, since y'all know everything 
and you aren't trying to sell me something:

dual-core (pentium-d) or p4ht?

I've googled enough to understand what's going on, and I've seen the reviews, 
I'm asking more like is dual-core going to be the sony beta, and I should stick 
with p4ht or not?  am I better off with p4ht, dollar-for-for dollar, etc.?

the p-d seems to run slightly slower (2.8 vs. 3.6) but I don't game that much 
and when I do it runs fine on the old 1.9 ghx machine, so that really shouldn't 
be an issue.  I do multi-task all the time, though.

overall, if you were buying the machine, what would you get?

don't see pentium 4 on the dell website, and the circuit city beat most of 
their prices.  the dual-core machine is a gateway for $850, fwiw. 

thanks, y'all.  my cable is still broken, though so haven't needed to actually 
purchase yet...
