Homework Statement



May someone please tell me how to figure out if my laptop is dual core or dual processor?
My professor told me to start using linux and I would prefer to do so on my laptop, but I do not know if it can be supported.

Homework Equations



control panel>system and security>system

my processor is labelled 550 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz
I attached a screen shot of my system page.

The Attempt at a Solution



I don't know whether this means I have two processors running 550@2GHz or if that is the total.
Is it a dual core
or are there two processors?

Yes , you can run Linux on your PC.
There are many distros available for your pc.
You can try running VectorLinux , or Lubuntu if you want a GUI interface with smooth operation.
O/w you can go for older version of Ubuntu.

If you want to go for Server edition , it will run fine. Server edition requires less resources but has command line input and no GUI.
