    OK a mate of mine has just bought a laptop. Its an acer with AMD turion 2 gig processor, 120 HD, dvd rewiriter, 1024mb ram and vista premium. now hes paid 480 for this and i told him that hed be better off getting one for the same price with the intel core duo which runs at 1.6

    The only difference i can think will be battery life or am i totally wrong ??

    Eddie :p

    Better performance, lower operating temp, lower power consumption, newer technology, the list goes on. I also won't mention that I've been an Intel fanboy since loads of AMD's killed over on me about 10 years ago.

    Agreed. Core Duo still used the old architecture... Core 2 Duo included a revamp of the processor architecture.
