Just don't make the purchase decision just based on the CPU, unless all other specifications are the same. The other components can make a difference in the overall performance of the laptop. Sheldon April 7, 2010 2:04:27 AM well everything else is basically the same i just want to try to get it down to price now. But if there is a major difference then i would go with the faster of the two. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumProcessors & Graphics question ?
