There is no advantage to dual processors unless used on servers or you have apps written to use them (Acad or Adobe Photo Shop).

Different structures

by TheChas In reply to Dual Proc compability

The MAC hardware has a very different structure as compared to PC hardware.

If there is such a thing as a dual processor MAC/PC system, it likely has the equivalent of dual motherboards.

There are software packages to emulate either style on the other's hardware.

I have read that Apple is working on a PC language!
