Nothing. There's probably no real difference between them, in terms of performance. In terms of battery life, one processor may have a few more minutes than the other possibly but that's really all I could think off.

Sure! Just C&P. :) 

If you want a real version you'll have to pay me > $9000. I'll decide on the specific price later, it'll be around that point, give or take $1337.

There is no significant difference. Either choice will provide nearly identical performance. The real question is what are you planning to do with the Turion X2? If you are upgrading a notebook, make sure it supports the processor before you buy it.

An easy way to tell if compatible is to determine if your model of notebook is also offered with the CPU you want to install. If so, updating to the most recent BIOS and then installing the CPU should be fine. Otherwise, your new CPU may not work in your notebook.

Good luck!

Yes..

You are correct in assuming that I am going to upgrade my notebook.

I have a Compaq Presario F700 (F730US) with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core TK-55 1.8GHz, the spec's are listed in the HP G6000 Notebook PC and Compaq Presario F700 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide saying the Processors available are
AMD processors:
Turion™ TL-66 2.30-GHz processor, 1-MB L2 cache
Turion™ TL-64 2.20-GHz processor, 1-MB L2 cache
Turion TL-62 2.10-GHz processor, 1-MB L2 cache
Turion TL-60 2.00-GHz processor, 1-MB L2 cache
Turion TL-58 1.90-GHz processor, 1-MB L2 cache
Athlon™ TK-57 1.90-GHz processor, 512-KB
L2 cache
Athlon TK-55 1.80-GHz processor, 128-KB
L2 cache

Mobile AMD Sempron™ 4000+ 2.20-GHz
processor, 512-KB L2 cache
Mobile AMD Sempron 3800+ 2.20-GHz processor,
256-KB L2 cache
Mobile AMD Sempron 3600+ 2.00-GHz processor,
256-KB L2 cache

A friend of mine told me that the specs can say one thing but I need to check to see if the chip will fit... how do I do that without cracking open the notebook?

I am nearly positive that the CPUs are of the same family and therefor the same socket. If it is listed in the service guide, it will fit
