I've seen these computers for sale on apple.com with Intel dual-core processors. So I would definitely think it does support dual-core. :P

What problems are you having exactly?

So this means he downloaded the Operating System then? Sorry I am not very familiar with Mac if it's an operating system; I thought Macs were based off of Unix. :o

LoL. I needed to download it for it to work on intel.

The problem I'm having is that once it boots it asks me to reboot again, and /i read online that MAC does not support dual, you have to disable one core....

DUH really can't get it :S maybe it's just a problem with the installation.

I don't Hacintosh,
However there is a legal computer that is for sale that runs Mac OS X. I feel better morally when I buy it from a company. Some research found that it is legal, but is against the apple software agreement. They call it the Open Computer , by Psystar.
Not trying advertise or anything, but it is there

There are also lawsuits flying in both directions between the companies over whether this is actually legal.

I stand corrected.
Yes, apple might sue psystar, because of there product. In turn psystar will sue apple over being a monopoly of there OS. I believe that this won't work and will serve more as a publicity stunt. Apple dose'nt want psystar to recieve the publicity so they don't sue.
That is my view...
