Atom n270 or Core Duo T2350

Hello,

I own a lenovo laptop (3000 N100) which has Core Duo T2350, 1GB RAM, 5400rpm harddisk.

I want to buy another laptop called Lenovo IdeaPad S12 2959 (very similar to this one):

It has Atom n270 with 2GB RAM, NVIDIA ION, 5400rpm harddisk.


My question is: which one will be faster for program compilation and simulation, like MATLAB, Quartus II, ModelSim etc.

I have read that Atom is a low-power CPU, but I didn't find any reference that specifics whether it will be better (or at least the same) then the Core Duo.


Thanks,
John

  1. If you want to do anything beyond emailing and surfing the net, Atom is useless. The N270 isn't even a dual-core version.
