View Full Version : Notebook specs comparison

25-07-2006, 03:40 PM
I'm a newbie to buyng a notebook computer and I'm comparing two machines
a 1.46 Ghz Celeron M with 512 RAM and a 1.6 Ghz Duron with 256 RAM. Both the same price. Both with inbuild 802b/gwireless.

I'm not a gamer, mainly an office applications user who also plays DVDs and surfs the net.

I'd like some advice on how these would compare in terms of performance?

Duron? They haven't made Durons for ages now. Its Semprons now. So in that case get the Celeron.
Neither are great but of the two.....

However, I would not look at either. DuRON, CeleRON, SempRON are just wRONg.

But for what you are intending to do, they should be fine,and you may also appreciate reliability. Look at that aspect and stick with well know brands. i.e. IBM, HP, Dell, Toshisba, Acer, ASUS and avoid lesser known names. Also try get an extended warranty (3 years or more). Laptops have a habit of breaking.

The celeron would be better as it has double the RAM, also being Intel, will have better intergrated wireless access controller.
