well it will definately replace my desktop, but i want it to be portable too, so it will be somewhere in between.robphy said:I believe core-duo has better energy management, as well as more processing power. However, you might find a deal on pentium-M/centrino laptops.
As usual, the questions to ask yourself:
what will it be used for?
ultraportable (say, 13" or less) ? or desktop replacement (say, 15" or more)? or something in between?
how heavy should it be? (on some, you can get longer battery life with secondary batteries... which, of course, weighs more)
how much are you willing to spend?
when do you need it by?
