Intel Pentium M or Core Duo

I'm looking for a Dell laptop around $1,000. Should I go for Inspiron 6000 with Pentium M or 1505 with Core Duo?. Mainly for MS Office and Web surfing.

  1. They are both good, it is up to you.
    The M is a very good chip, and so is the Duo. Depends if you need the dual core or not, I would choose the Duo.
  2. In practice you're not going to see a difference in typical office apps and web surfing between a Pentium M and Core Duo.

    However that could change in future releases of M$ Office and Vista/IE7.

    I'd go w/ Core Duo. It's pretty bad ass and doesn't sacrifice battery life for performance.
