I'm looking at low end laptops as a Christmas wishlist item but I'm more confused than ever about CPU choices and designations.
I'd be running Audio VSTs for music creation and a few games. The budget is limited and I've zeroed in on a couple of Turion X2 RM-70 based systems versus a couple of Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 systems. Which one would you pick? For audio processing? For games (don't worry I'm not expecting a bleeding edge game system just "time killer" sort of stuff)? They seem to be similar class machines but I'd love to hear thoughts/recommendations.

The AMD should be cheaper. . if price is your primary motivating factor, then AMD.
But the intel ones perform better and have better battery life right ?
