What is the major differences between a intel core 2 solo cpu processor and a normal pentium core duel processor

Can't be certain what you have in mind. Here's a reference on a relatively recent Core 2 Solo:

Evidently, it's a single core CPU intended for a very low power "mobile" (battery power) device.
The original Core Duo (dual core) was meant for laptops (32-bit OS only) and was superseded a few years ago by the ubiquitous Core 2 Duo, which originally supported SSSE3 instruction set, as well as both 32- and 64-bit OS, in both laptop and desktop versions. More recent Core 2 Duo support SSE4.1 instructions, like the new Core Solo, but draw much more power than Solo (several times as much power, in desktop models).

Here is the list of the current Core Duo family, supporting sse4.1, released since last year:
