What are you talking about? Mac OS X does understand and makes use of hyper-threading.

If I bring up System Information on my MacBook Pro, it will tell me I've got an Intel Core i7 CPU, that there's 1 2.3GHz processor, and total number of cores is 4. This is all quite correct. There are 4 physical cores in the CPU.

If I go to Activity Monitor and bring up the CPU Usage window, I see 8 graphs, since my CPU has hyper-threading.
