I need to buy 2 machines for .NET programming. I will be using Visual Studio.NET and MS SQL as my basic softwares for the application development.
I need to buy 2 desktops for this.
I need to make a choice on the hardware front on should i buy --
1. a P4 3 GHZ with 1GB RAM or
2. a Dual Core 3.4 GHZ with 1GB RAM along with the other standard items or
Can anyone tell me which one would be a faster machine for my programming requirements ?
Also can anyone tell me if Intel has stopped manufacturing P4 processors ?
