    I think if you really want to impress your friends (at least if they know anything about anything), you probably want “Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad”. Core 2 Duo is the trademarked name for the dual (Duo = 2) core processor–though not sure why the TM is after Core, I guess Core is the only TMd part. Core 2 Quad is the trademarked name for the quad (4) core version. “Quad Core” is a descriptive term and would not be trademarked. But if you’re doing this, why not go all out and use the Intel Core 2 Extreme anyway.
