Processor--- T7200-------------TL-56
Processor--- 2.0Ghz------------1.8Ghz
Ram---------- 2GB (2x1GB)-----3GB (1GB + 2GB)
Ram speed- PC5300------------PC5300

Hard Drive-- 80GB---------------200GB
HD RPM------ 5400RPM---------4200RPM

  1. OS is the same? Send the one that looks 'nicer' to Mom.
    Otherwise they'll both do equally well for basic laptop duties.
    Anyone going to be wanting to watch HD videos?
  2. Both Laptops are running Windows 7 64bit
    Both Laptops will have to run some HD movies but they will mostly be used for Internet and Word Processing
    the one i keep i may play a couple light games while on the go but mine will have to run AutoCAD and Revit (which is a processor and memory hog)

    they both look new as they have both been in Laptop bags whenever they were moved.
    both work 100% butthe A215 has a nice shiney top.
    i'm just partial to AMD ever since i built my gaming desktop
    but my intel (A135) has served me without fault for the last 2.5 years
  3. In terms of raw CPU power the CPUs have the follow CPU Passmark scores:
    Intel Core2 Duo T7200 @ 2.00GHz = 1136
    AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-56 = 860
  4. Cool little charts hadn't seen those before!

    Yeah I notcied the T7200 is a bit more powerful than the TL-56 but the AMD machine can also support 4GB of ram and I can eventually upgrade the TL-56 to a TL-66 which is right around the level of the T7200, or even a faster AMD CPU but thats for later.
  5. They're close enough in performance you probably wouldn't notice any difference switching between them.
  6. Yeah the fact that overall performance is near identical i think is making it a hard choice.
    I guess i'm just trying to get opinions of why one would choose one over the other.

    Thanks for helping this far
