You can run both with the right processor(EE editions).

Heres anandtech take on dual cores.

As far as i am concerned HT technology will not equal 2 processors on a single core. The second processor in HT never runs at the speed of the first proc.

The dual core processor has a better technology in that it uses 90 nanometer (smaller, lower power) transistors. In the CPU world smaller is better because it not only operates faster but uses less power to do so. Also a smaller die is cheaper to produce because they can cut more dies out of the same size silicon wafer.
