  1. Best answer
    Atom Z3740. It has four cores and is significantly newer than the other two. This CPU is also designed for mobile devices so it won't fit any generic motherboards (in case you're thinking of buying this CPU separately).
  2. Thanks! I was asking because I'm considering upgrading from my current 2009 laptop, which has the Core 2 Duo, to a more current budget laptop for Office/Web use. The Asus K200MA has the Celeron and the Asus T100TA (w/ 500GB HDD) has the Atom. Still undecided between the two, but its nice to know I won't be accidentally downgrading lol

    PS I actually prefer AMD processors, though I don't know of any decent laptops in the 250-350 range with AMD CPUs
  3. Although the atom is newer, the low power architecture has comparable performance to core 2. Really the core 2 duo is better for just about every app.

    You forgot to mention the Core 2 Duo's capability to make the laptop serve as a frying pan :)
  5. Yeah it does get super hot during those extended research projects lol
  6. It doesn't get too hot and should stay below 65c. Was the question not about performance though?

    Yes it was :) thanks for the info! I've just been looking into some smaller, lighter laptops that would be easier to lug all day at school. Ever since my old HP with a dual core AMD Turion died, my fault :(, this Core 2 feels slow. It does tend to heat up, but has never been cleaned. Just wanna find out if I'd be able to see any performance inprovement if I were to invest in a laptop with the Celeron or Atom. I'm also looking into low priced AMD A series and 3rd gen i3 powered laptops

    also forgot that running the cpu monitor lags up my system bad, temp gets around 82 C sometimes!
