Laptop Buying Tips :: Pick a Laptop Processor

Found this little article from Ebay while looking (just looking) for a $500 laptop that can complete with a $1,200 laptop – HP Pavillion DV2550SE. Hope this helps someone out there.

AMD and Intel make several processors typically found in laptops. Some optimize laptop battery life while others concentrate on performance. Mobile processors, indicated by the word “Mobile” or just “M,” need less power and generate less heat than processors designed for desktops.

Unless you need a powerful desktop replacement, get a mobile processor to extend battery life and prevent overheating.

  • Celeron: Intel’s budget-oriented chip with speeds up to 2.5GHz. They run slightly slower than Pentiums but not as slow as pentium-M!
  • Celeron-M:This low-cost processor has speeds up to 1.5GHz.People looking to email, surf the Internet, and use word processing applications will be fine with the Celeron-M. It replaced the Pentium III-M in the low-end laptop processor arena.

  • Pentium-M: Buy a battery-efficient Pentium-M, available in speeds up to 2.1GHz. The processor is part of Intel’s Centrino Mobile Technology with built-in Wi-Fi.
  • Pentium 4: Designed for desktops, Intel’s Pentium 4 will appeal to multimedia enthusiasts. With speeds up to 3.33GHz, they tend to get hot and eat up battery life. If you intend to stay plugged in, they offer great performance.
  • Intel Core Duo: Intel’s Core Duo line benefits from having multiple processors on one chip. These are especially useful if you have multiple heavy computing needs that need to run simultaneously.
  • AMD Sempron: If you don’t need much computing power, or are on a very tight budget, the Sempron is AMD’s low end chip.
  • AMD Athlon 64: Always a favorite of gamers, the Athlon 64 supports 64-bit computing and is usually found in desktop replacements.
  • AMD Athlon 64 FX: Originally designed as a high-end line, the FX now shares many of its original qualities with the Athlon 64 line. However, the unlocked clock multipliers on the FX chips keeps it very popular with the overclocking crowd.
  • AMD Turion 64: Capable of running both 32-and 64-bit programs, the Turion is designed for high performance, while allowing thinner and lighter notebooks.
  • AMD Turion 64 X2: The dual core version of the Turion 64.
