Are dual core processors worth buying at this point in technology?

When it comes to the world of computers, two is almost always better than one. Dual monitors let you do twice the work of one monitor. A two-processor computing system is far more powerful than a single-processor system.

Unfortunately, there’s the cost issue. Not many users have several hundred dollars lying around for a system with an extra processor. Questions to be addressed like, “Do you want to spend the time and money finding the right processor for your computer? Are dual core processors worth buying at this point in technology? For you, the answer may be yes, it’s definitely worth your time and money to get dual core processors. For others, the answer is no. It may not be worth it to get a dual core processor at this point. Whether or not it is worth getting depends on your purpose and computer use. A person who only uses their computer for word processing may find it is not worth it, while the person whose whole life is on the computer will find it more worthwhile.

Even though dual-core processors probably won’t offer double the power of a single-core processor, they will provide significant improvements in power, especially for high-end users who multitask.
