Seems the Core2Duo gives best performance right now,but what's the best value for money in a laptop package.
Trying to find out how much more having a Core2Duo costs in laptop(if all other specs. are equal how much more is it).
Also how much more do you pay and for how much performance gain(is it double the money for double the power or double the money for 20% extra processing).
Looking at HP right now as they seem to be giving the best value.
Naw,word processing & watching DVDs.Don't need much power most of the time,but every bit'll count the odd times I do.Definitely not for games though as ones with dedicated graphics seem to start at £600(my max. spend).
Looking right now at a Tosh with a T2400 and an Acer with T5500.Difference Acer has the CPU & a few extra pluses,the Tosh has an X1400(think that's it) ATI graphics & looks better & is meant to be sturdier.
they are just trying to make money. Most laptop producers sell core 2 duo processors for double the price of core duo in their laptops. if you buy the processer seperatly the price is the same between C2D and core duo.
