They are both based on the Caspian core (K10 architecture).

Obviously the Turion II is superior. The Intel core 2 duo is the most powerful processor but that chipset will not be any good for anything graphics intense. Of course, that is not a problem if you don't do anything graphics intense. However, you failed to tell us the amount of memory in that computer.

The Turion II also has more memory. Another plus. Given only the details you supplied, I would recommend the Turion II system.

Do you want just a fast CPU or a whole laptop (system) that is fast, reliable and a good value for your money?
Have you looked into the Laptop & Notebooks section of the THG forums?
