Intel Atom N570 + ION 2 vs Intel SU4100 + GMA 4500 MHD


Oct 22, 2011
What is better for general computing and YouTube videos? Gaming is not really a concern for me. I'm traveling abroad to study, so battery life/general performance is most important, although I would like to be able to watch HD videos.

Option 1: Asus eee PC with Intel Atom dual core N570 1.66Ghz and Nvidia ION 2 GPU. 1GB DDR3 RAM (Probably will upgrade to 2GB)

Option 2: MSI Wind 12" with Intel dual core SU4100 1.3Ghz and GMA 4500 MHD. (Will install either 2GB or 4GB ddr2 RAM.)

I want whichever is faster. Another concern is that option 1 supports a maximum of 2GB DDR3 RAM, whereas option 2 supports a maximum of 4GB DDR2 RAM.

Is 4GB DDR2 better than 2GB DDR3?

Thank you.
