In Theory according to Intel, by using Hyper Threading you can achieve the performance of two processors. In others words, having a Hyper Threading processor is like having two processors instead of one. Better performance.

For Example: PC WORLD BENCH SCORES

Intel Celeron: aprox 1400 Pentium 4 w/HT: aprox 2500
512mb Ram 1gb Ram
80gb HD 80gb Hard Drive
