Okay, I am looking to purchase either an Acer Timeline 4810 or its larger screened cousin the 5810 and am a little unsure about which processor to get.
The Acer 4810 commonly comes with a Pentium Dual Core CULV SU4100 1.3ghz processor, but I can - if I throw more money at it - get the Pentium Core 2 Duo CULV SU9400 1.4ghz processor. Now clearly the latter is the better choice but money is tight.
My real query, then, is will the Dual Core SU4100 be sufficient for my needs? I am not a gamer, but a writer using only word-processing software in the main. I do quite a bit of surfing and do some TV streaming (iplayer, 4OD etc) and watch the odd DVD. Will I be able to make do with the PDC or will it struggle? Is there going to be a great difference between these two processors? Would love to know what they'd be if anyone has the time and inclination!
