The Turions in comparison are a bit dated. | Report abuse mikethk February 22, 2010 12:22:14 PM Naaaa, dont be sure here. The turion 2 Ultra is a very fast cpu. Expecially in the terms of browsing..... The i3 is almost as good, but i would compare it to athlon x2 2,2 Ghz. | Report abuse Anonymous Laptop Expert March 14, 2010 10:25:01 PM Yeah, be sure that the i3 is faster. The slowest i3 gets a passmark score of 2059 while the fastest Turion II gets a score of 1643. The i3 is certainly way faster than an Athlon X2 2,2 Ghz.

(and power efficiency?) both of these are important in a laptop. I'm looking at the Hp laptops: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/ho/WF25b/321957-32... dv6-2111sa (WB413EA) (i3 Processor i3-330M 2.13 GHz, Level 2 cache 3 MB) dv6-2113sa (WB329EA) (AMD Turion™ II Ultra Dual-Core Processor M620 2.5 GHz, Level 2 cache 2 MB) Both are same price, both have 4 GB RAM yet i3 has ddr3 memory, compared to AMD's DDR2 Which of the two would you recommend?
