  1. The CoreI7 is MUCH better in terms of performance then the Turion...
    The Turion should be MUCH more inexpensive...

    They dont really compare.
  2. The turion TK-55 is crap, if you are in need of a laptop make sure it has an INTEL CPU.....
  3. That's like asking which is best a 'Kia Pride' or an 'Aston Martin DB9'...
