Try the utility found at CPUID.com. It will tell you what model, stepping, and core you have. From that, you can find out at intel.com if you have Ht.

System Information

I have a Dell desktop with Hyper Threading, and when I bring up the task manager window and go to the performance monitor, it shows 2 graphs for the processor. Also, when I bring up system information, it lists two processors, each at a speed near the claimed clock speed of my actual processor. I don't know if this helps or not.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
