I thought that "quad core" meant quad core. My system says that it has 2 cores, but perhaps I'm thinking of it wrong, or perhaps the OS ignores 2 cores. What do you know about the issue.
(Note: Intel isn't shipping the new dual core i5 / i7s until the 20th, so if mine actually is a "dual core", I'm gonna be mad).
