Hi

Im planning to buy a laptop from xoticpc.com and was wondering which of the two cpus would be better? T9500 or P8600. there's a $135.00 difference between them. Below is the current spec as they stand.

cpu:???
memory: 2gig 1066Mhz
HDD: 200gig 7200rpm
Grafix: 512MB 9800GT
Screen 17" 1920x1200

with the P8600 processor price stands at $2350 exl shippin


Thanx in advance

Hello mate :) 
Get the T9300 because its 100mhz faster and has 6mb cache the only 2 advantages that P8600 has is that it has 1066MHZ FSB and less power consumption.

I'd go with the P8600, for the faster FSB.

Going off the OP, I think you meant the T9500 and it would be 200mhz faster. Unless of course you are recommending something completely different.

Anyone else find it odd that Intel has the T9400 listed as a 1066mhz FSB part when all the other T series are 800mhz?

No.

I think it's like the T7 series - the even numbered parts (T7200, T7400, T7600) had a 667FSB, while the odd numbered ones (T7300, T7500, T7700) had an 800FSB. With the T9 series, it's probably similar, with the odd numbered ones being on an 800FSB, while the even ones are on a 1066FSB.

^You know, I completely forgot that they released the T9 evens with the launch of Centrino 2. Man am I smart :pfff: 

Yes you are right, the T9600 and T9400 are both 1066 FSB parts.

oh sorry i thought it was T9300,thanks for clearing that up,my vote goes for T9500 instead for the reasons i said(and its 200mhz faster not 100)

so the t9500 is worth the extra $$$.

wat about t9400

thanx for the input

I'd go with a 1066FSB CPU for that system, IE T9500, T9300. The 9400 is only an 800FSB, so would not have as much memory bandwidth.

Now you have it backwards. The T9400 and T9600 are the 1066FSB parts, whereas the T9300 and T9500 are the 800FSB's. Man we are on fire in this thread!

But yes, the T9400 would be a good alternative if it is cheaper than the T9500.

Crud.

Oops.

Just switch it around, and that's what I mean. So the 9400 should be perfect.
