To make a long story short, Im thinking about buying an old laptop. Unfortunately I dont know much about intel, so I came here to ask you guys about the laptops processors. One of the laptop models im looking at has a pentium 4 [email protected] ghz, the other has a pentium 3 [email protected] ghz. Now I do know that the new pentium M processors are based heavily on the pentium 3's architecture, and for example a 1.2 ghz pentium M is comparable to a 2.2 ghz pentium 4m with less battery consumption. Now in my case Im wondering if the p3 mobile would compare to, or outperform the pentium 4 mobile. The laptops are actually the exact same model, the only difference being the processor. So if I can save money by buying the p3, by all means I will. I just need some advice.
