Duo vs quad

Community Manager

what is the difference in everyday home performance, no gaming, between the intel core2 duo p8600 (2.4ghz) w/ 6mb DDR2 and 3mb L2cache and the core2 quad q9000 (2.0ghz) w/ 6mb DDR2 and 6mb L2 cache? I'm a simple user trying to decide on a laptop, please go easy on me. I know the quad is better at multitasking, but is it worth the extra money for everyday use?
