The package could have 'optionally' came with a dual-core CPU as it shows on the box, so that alone means there is something out there that works.
In the 'Quick Guide' it states:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor
AMD Athlon 64 single-core processor
Of course, this could mean the 1.2 GHZ dual-core which wouldn't be as much faster than the 1.6 GHZ single-core AMD64 TF-20 it has now....but, this is what I want to find out.
Laptop has HD3200 graphics. Sister won't game, but dvd's would be nice. So far the supplied dvd software is nicely buggy and not the greatest at de-interlacing and scaling (combing). Maybe the next time I boot it up it will work...lol...although, the screen is quite low in contrast, high in black levels and doesn't have the best viewing angle, so not really going to be used for that much. Otherwise, it's proving to be ok so far.
Anyhow, I guess I will get the CPUID prog and run it on the laptop and see what it says and go looking from there.
