Can someone from Woot please confirm that this is a single-CPU box? (It costs a C-note more than the dual-processor T5600 but the specs are almost identical other than the CPU being a generation newer).
And if it is single-CPU, does the motherboard support a second processor?
Is a single CPU that is one generation newer worth more than TWO of the previous generation?

If this box isn’t dual CPU… I know which one I’d go with.
Hi there. We just heard back from the vendor:
“It comes with one CPU, but the motherboard has two CPU sockets.”
