Core 2 Duo obviously...but go in for the 2.13 ( E6400 or E6600 ) one. It rocks! :p

no need. the moment you run more than one process on a computer both cores are used. Yes, it would be useless if only 1 process is executing on a dual core processor but that never happens ;)

With this much power, FireFox might be able to load sites better. At present loading sites like ibnlive.com takes CPU usage to 100%

Very correct,ff spikes the cpu usage instantly with ajax or some heavy js (not to mention about those java chat applets)...

note, that "spiking" the cpu, going to 100% is not necessarily a bad thing... its also a sign of good cpu utilisation :)

ha :pi am not sure but digg sure makes my browser crawl sometimes. sites should not be eating up 100% of processors. atleast unless they are offering more than just plain text content.
