What I've been reading is that the Core i7 for notebooks is not a quad core cpu, is this correct? Even the tech at sony said that the i7 in notebooks is only a dualcore cpu. but I have read that its also a quad core, so I am very confused at this point on which one it is. Any help would be appriciated?
