I am deciding between two sperate laptops. Both have 4GB of DDR2 @ 667.
One is the Gateway 5387u
-IGP ATI HD4200
-AMD Turion II Ultra Dual Core M600 @2.4Ghz
The Other is the HP DV6Z
-AMD Athlon x2 QL-64 @2.1Ghz
(Sorry, all I could find is an ebay link. That is where I would buy it from though.)
Im wondering what the performance of these two laptops would be.
Though the HP has a better and dedicated graphics card, Im wondering if the slower processor would bottleneck its performance.
Im looking to use it for some MMO's and a few other light games. (Regardless, Id like to have the most power possible ).
Normally 0.3Ghz difference in speed wouldn't concern me, except for the fact that Passmark.com rated the Athlon processor at ~1000, and the Turion II Ultra at ~1500 (No, I don't know what their rating system is.)
Also, on a side note, the Gatway supports 802.11b/g/n WLAN while the HP supports only 802.11b/g. Is this a big difference?
