    I'm looking at two nearly identical low end laptops:

    1) Celeron M 540(1.84GHz), FSB 533MHz, 1 MB L2 Cache.

    2) Core 2 Duo T5250(1.5GHz, FSB 667MHz, 2MB L2 Cache($100 more).

    The latter seems like it might offer the best performance, given the dual core and other stats, but thought I would ask you ET'ers before proceeding. Thanks.
  2. Celerons are actually pretty good. However, the C2Ds have outclassed all that came before.... and they're still getting better.

    the software demand will continue to increase; multi-core is the only way to go.
  4. True. It won't be long before there will be no single cores at all in the market.
