Yes I agree that it's quite a system and if you're buying it as a hedge against obsolesence, you'll be okay for a little while. New technology is always around the corner, that's what drives the industry. As for dual-core processors, I have some reservations about the real need. If you do high end video editing, run processor intensive tasks that are under a time constraint, or just want bragging rights, sure go for it. If you are mainly going to use it for light word processing, surfing, e-mail and occasional gaming I think you might be happier with a lesser system and use the extra money saved for some software you would like.
Just my opinion.
