My executive summary, makes a big difference in encoding and rendering application, not much in games or office applications. Should make for a more responsive computing experience with fewer applications "waiting" whilst you complete another task. Interestingly the dual core extreme edition with HyperThreading runs slower in many applications than the regular dual core. Now just waits to see what pricing and availability are like. Oh and to get a job so I can actually afford one!
And probably a dozen more by the end of the day.
