Does anybody have any information that compares how the Intel Core 2 Duo T5300, T5600, & T7200 perform? I'm going to buy a laptop soon, these are the 3 Core 2 CPUs offered, and I want to know if the 75 dollar upgrade from T5300->T5600, or the 150 dollar upgrade from T5300->T7200 is worth it? I will be using the laptop for the next 4 years, if that will help.
Your happiness w/the laptop will depend a lot on things such as the screen, keyboard, graphics performance, ports, manufacturer build quality and support, etc.
I would *strongly* recommend against any laptop that uses integrated graphics. Besides much lower graphics performance, this uses up a big chunk of your (limited) main memory.
