I'm looking at two laptops currently, debating on which to get. Main difference between two is the cpu. I was just wondering would the 1.0 ghz quad core have an advantage over the 1.5 ghz dual.

The A6-1450 is based on the low-power Jaguar architecture. That has very low performance per clock and per core. The Celeron 1007U may only have half as many cores, but each of them runs at 50% higher clocks and gets a lot more work done per clock. It's going to be faster in most cases.

Given the efficiency of current operating systems when using quad core CPU's, I would happily reccomend a quad core over a dual core. (This is presuming they're both 'entry level')
