Specs: Windows XP
Interested to buy a netbook... its acer aspire one..D255E-13CKK... the sales person informed me that its a core... but through searching in the net.. i found out that there is a single core and a dual core.. is there a big difference in relation to performance between these two processor? Is intel atom D255E-13CKK single core or dual core?

Yes, no and it depends upon what you use your netbook for. Dual Cores help carry the work load of a process or processes which allows you to do other things without the potential of cpu lag when working with multipile programs at once in which a Dual Core has the advantage over a Single Core. Now with that said Dual Cores take up more power then Single Cores do on avg in which Single Cores have the advantage over Dual Cores. So, if you're trying to save as much battery power as possible, then you will want to go with a Single Core to get that extra amount of portable power savings. If multitasking is more important then you will want to go with a Dual Core to complete task faster. In conclusion it all depends upon what fits your needs the most.

Here is the CPU spec's:
That shows as a single core.
Here are the system spec's:

A dual core CPU will probably do more for system responsiveness than actual application performance. In many situations this will be more important. Whether or not this is worth the reduced run time on batter power is something only you can decide.

a dual core cpu is recommended these days to run decent apps properly. a single core can run apps but will limit the bandwidth between its fsb and the ram, meaning that a dual core cpu will allow u to take advantage of multiple programs running at the same time with no lag at all. while a single core would limit ur ability to do that, thus taking more time to respond
