Seems that the 3.0GHz Intel is about the same prices as the 2.8GHz with Dual
Core. Any thoughts as to which would be a more practicle purchase?

More about : dual core single price

Depends on what you're going to use it for and the software/OS you
intend to use on it.

As multicore CPUs become more common software will be written to take
advantage of multi-core CPUs. For right now though, there's a good chance
the 3.0 CPU would be slightly faster than a dual core 2.8 CPU.

I'd still get the dual core cpu though, just 'cause it's the most
geektastic.
