Hi, I'm a new member and thought I'd make a post. I have a question regarding my processor. I purchased it a few years ago. It's a Pentium (R) 3.0 Dual-Core processor. My friend is in the market for a processor himself though he's on a very tight budget, so he aims to avoid the Core 2 family for now. The only Dual-cores I see kicking around now are no greater than 2.0 though they are from the "E" family. My question is what is the difference between my (R) chip and the current E series? Which would be more powerful, my R 3.0 or the E 2.0?
