I thought Home Premium was dual-cpu; yes twin 5130s (hence,
four cores - there wasn't a quad-core 5100 until later).
I should have gone back and re-read threads or this:
Seems like it should be made clear. Looking at "compare editions" doesn't
even put a bullet next to dual vs single cpu. Most "features" are of little
interest, and the ones they don't, that are hidden away under the hood, are
what I care most about. 300 channels of tv and nothing to watch.
I thought there was a bit flipped.... it was just me!
