What is the diffence between Xeon Quad Core and just a regular Quad Core processor like Intel Q6600? I know Xeon is for servers and such , but what kind of difference does that make. Does that mean Xeon is more reliable? What would be the downside to running a Xeon processor in lets say a desktop computer? Would it be able to handle tasks that the Q6600 will be able to handle?
