the core 2 duo is definitely better however let me explain the current situation of processor market..... I would say that at the present situation after the huge price cuts from both intel and AMD camps this year the entire processor market is going great and the winner is obviously the customers..... I think if a user is more budget oriented,then the AMD is processor is the best one for him as it has great motherboards for less prices and the integrated graphics is also better.... However if a user is performance oriented,then i would suggest the Core 2 Duo from Intel as it has higher performance and lower heat/power margins...... I were to choose between the two,currently i would choose a cheaper intel Core 2 Duo and overclock it to the extreme and then have the performance of a high end machine.....
