gosh i'm fed up of explaining this!! Its hard for a beginner to understand, so i'll try to make it as simple as possible.

Core 2 Duo - Older intel architecture, medium to high end 2 core CPUs, made on 45nm. Eg- Core 2 Duo E8400

Core i3 - Newer architectures, medium range 2 core CPU, with Hyperthreading, and made on 32nm. Eg- Core i3 560

Pentium Dual core - Low end 2 core CPUs made from anu of the above, by disabling some features, like cache, and lower clock speeds etc. Eg:- E6300 or G6950.


Generally speaking, "Dual Core" means a 2 core CPU.
Intel has confused 95% of PC buyers by branding some of their processors "Pentium Dual Core". :)
