Re: Dual core vs Quad core question

Thanks for everyone's input.

After weeks of research it looks like the Lenovo Carbon 1 with the i5 processor, 8 GB of Ram and the 256BG SSD was just about the only viable option if I wanted to keep the weight down.  And that's a good thing since I'd ordered one in early November and it'll arrive later this week.  The other good thing is that it's returnable at their cost for 30 days from date of invoice.

I think the dual core setup will be fine but I wish the SSD was larger.  Unfortunately there was no way to get a larger SSD though some outside the US seem to have gotten their hands on this unit with a 512 SSD....or so they say.

And of course on the 31st day of the 30 day return deal they'll be offering a 512 ssd....lol
