Pc world sucks, they had the top 15 desktop pcs a few months back(actually its every month) but they had a p3 system on top of an amd system, what I found hilarious(origional p3 mind you) was both systems had the exact same videocard, and under graphics pc world gave the p3 "very good" and the amd only "good" wtf is up with that?
"Friends don't let friends buy Pentiums"
dude, stop crying your a$$ off, deal with it! the P3 mobile is better, cooler, smarter! get used to it because, the Athlon4 is getting beat by a P3-s with same clock but lower fsb and sdram, what a shame!
"<b>AMD/VIA!</b>...you are <i>still</i> the weakest link, good bye!"
I'm not going to comment on the processors at the same speed. The 1.13 will probably be faster, but that's for you to decide. However, Dell makes better computers than Compaq. In addition, Win2k is much more stable, and since you'll be buying everything from Dell no worries about incompatibilities, so win2k is the better OS in this case also.
lol i always hated pc world eversince they forced me to buy their stupid subscription. I had some legal thing in the mail saying i owed them money? i have no idea...
STAY AWAY FROM PC WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
with that said, that should tell you that pc world is a crock and biased and definitly plagued with bureaucracy.
for one Dells are superior compared to a compaq... just the fact that the dell laptop IS more expensive and at a higher clock has more RAM and double the RAM compared to the compaq, has a much better video solution and then say the dell is better .. well duh! I think they were just compareing the two companies top dawg laptop.
top dell vs top compaq. You know a techno-illiterate writer when he writes about the computers when they refere to the chip as the computer instead of the actual computer.
it's a case of "duh"! 5 is higher then 3 lol ya know?
Do you realize the only person that spelled Athlon correctly (AmdMeltdown) in this thread so far has been a person who was mocking the chip line? Amazing.
Althons and Pentiums are just melted rock. Who’s rock is better? Who cares, let’s play some games

It kind of like how Tom's Hardware is baised toward AMD and always find a way to make AMD the better processor no matter what they are comparing. I believe that Tom's Hardware would find a way to make the K6-2 beat out a top of the line Intel P4 1.8ghz.
o, of course that beats althon4
because the PIII system is 1.113GHz with 256MB RAM and 32mb DDR Geforce2
and the Althon4 only 1.0GHz and 128mb ram, 8mb ATI
things just unfair, that's it...
so before you open your month, make sure everything is fair!!
