Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very well-suited for server application. Built-in virtualization architecture. Extremely fast quad-core processor can deliver under the right circumstances.

The Cons:Very expensive; starting at around $900. Isn't much faster than Core 2 Duo in many applications that don't make use of the 4 cores. Not ideally suited for gaming.
