Toshiba laptop L505-S5966: duo or not duo?

Hi,
Just ordered this Toshiba laptop from http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/177695, and it says that is DUO:
"Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor T4200 with 800MHz frontside bus, 1MB L2 cache and 2.0GHz processor speed " no CPU ID sticker.

Then looked let say on toshiba.com or jr.com and see that it's single cpu:
http://laptops.toshiba.com/laptops/satellite/L500/L505-S5966.
Intel® Pentium® Processor T4200 (Intel Inside on sticker)


Anybody can help me to resolve this confusion and possible to get it returned, as I got order for duo/dual core or cpu laptop.
I don't think that in this non-expensive configuration different cpu option,
will appreciate your opinions.

Is there any chance to call this laptop as dual-core?
Where on laptop itself i can check this?

    Go to the part where it says # of cores, it says 2
  2. It is a Pentium D, that is a dual core processor but NOT a core 2 duo.

    There's a difference between having 2 processors and 2 cores, but don't worry that laptop does have 2 cores, you should have gotten a Core 2 duo instead though, the pentium Ds are not as efficient as the Core 2 Duos
  4. Pentium D's do a good impression of a toaster too :)
