Turion is slightly lower than a Core 2 Duo. Keep in mind that Centrino is a mobile processor branding that uses a Core 2 Duo processor (Penryn).

For the most part, Core 2 Duo is better than Turion, as Turion seems to run a bit too hot for my liking, and the performance isnt as good at C2D either.

However, if you want to keep the cost as low as possible, for normal everyday work you shouldn't see a huge difference between C2D and Turion.
