Please clue me in so I know what I have. My laptop is an Acer 8943g with a Intel Core I5 430M Proccessor with 4gb RAM and 1gb Video Memory. Where I'm confused is at the i5processor. I thought it was a dual core, but when I view a couple of different prgrams they say that the Core i5 is a single physical core. Then I hear that the i5 is either a dual core or quad core?? I know about the Hyper threading, but why would they call something dual core if it only has one, or is one broke on my machine and it's just not showing? Please try and explain this to me so I understand if something is working or if it's just labelled strange. I've enclosed a snip of info that I took from SIW on my i5.
