turning it off will leave you with a single core processor as the other core will not get started/initialized when you boot up. If you're trying to save energy then yes, turn it off.

yes for single threaded applications,1 core is sufficient and the second is not utilized but for multi threaded applications like gaming or video editing,2 cores will help a lot.
my advice is not to disable the other,you will see a margin ably big performance drop
