    Not the same. Core 2 Duo has a different architecture from the older P4 (and dual-core P4) chips, and it is absolutely *awesome*.

    Core 2 Duo is 64 bit for a start.

    as said dual core aint very good.

    But core 2 duo is good, its also 64bit and is a hell of a lot faster.

    64-bit isn't what makes Core 2 Duo stand apart. The Pentium Dual-Cores, Pentium Ds, Celeron Ds, and even some Pentium 4 models are 64-bit as well: link.
