Intel Pentium M or Core Duo Tags: CPUs Pentium Core Last response: March 15, 2006 3:56 AM in CPUs Share machawlay March 15, 2006 12:38:34 AM 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.

Depends if you need the dual core or not, I would choose the Duo. mpjesse March 15, 2006 3:56:26 AM 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. -mpjesse Can't find your answer ?
