My Flip Mino HD video camera requires a Pentium 3.0 GHz or faster processor. Is a Core i5 faster? I want to buy a 17.3 inch laptop.

Yes, almost everything that has the name "Core" would work.

A core 2 duo/quad & i3/5/7 of any kind is faster than a even the fastest p4 ever made.

Im sure you're more than fine even if it's a mobile cpu. ;)

Pentium 4 is a joke compared to the I5, or any modern processor for that matter.(Excluding Atom)

i know, i just messing with yea but yes i do have a p4. ;)  Also have laptops around my house core 2 duo's, pentium dual core, old celerons , and 1 even with a core i7 in it. All mobile cpu's (except for the celies) that can run around the p4 desktop i have.

Although the core i7 is my dad's laptop and he doesn't let anyone else touch it (still has that newish feel :lol:  ) and all the other laptops only have integrated graphics. so any games i play can only play decently on a this rig.

I know i need to upgrade. :sarcastic:  Although i can make up my mind if i want a high end machine for folding@home/gaming or a moderate machine that more budget friendly. :lol: 

But yeah. Im not the only one with an old rig here, there other people with even old rigs that make mine look modern or high end. :D  Some one has/had a pentium 3 on here and I think AMDfangirl has Athlon k6/7. could be wrong on that but i know that people here with thoses kind of rigs.

I have an old socket 754 Sempron 3400, 2Gb DDR 400, Integrated Geforce 6100, 40Gb hard drive system that is running Ubuntu. Of course I've also got 3 rigs with quads in them. :lol:

Pentium architecture is/was horrible, anything built past that even at a lower clock, dominates the pentium 4
