Which cpu would you recommend for a multi user environment like k12ltsp
Anyone have any personal experience to compare. 

The following cpu cost the same

Xeon 2.8 EM64T 1MB cache 800 FSB
Hyperthreading (With HT kernel sees double the cpus)

Opteron 242 
Built in memory controller (beats xeon on most benchmarks)

Would your choice be different on single cpu vs dual cpu server?
