oc'ing to 3200+ speeds.

2500+m costs more of course, and the 2400+m is the 45 watt version.

I think that both the 2500 and 2400-m's are 45 watt. As for the difference, the 2500+ is KNOWN to go very high because that's what the majority of people have been using, however, from what I understand (which is likely considering how cpus are binned) the 2400, 2500, and 2600 are all the same chips with different frequencies. So I'd say 2400 if you want to save some money and 2500 if you want guaranteed good overclocking (well, not guaranteed, but a very good chance :)).

Good choice.

Even the 2400+ 35 watters purchased recently do 'only' 2.4 to 2.5 GHz for most people.

With 2500+, at least you may get lucky.

2600+s are the ones to get this month for the best chance of those rare 2.7 GHz overclocks but they cost a bit more...

I sure hope you're gonna be trying for more than 3200+ speeds though. My regular 2500+ got up that high pretty easily and my mobile is up over 2300 MHz right now (had to turn it down for the summer)

Rest assured any 2400+ mobile will do 2200mhz (3200+ speeds) quite easily, using ~1.65V.

Mine tops out around 2550mhz, at 77$, I'm not complaining. On the other hand, several 2400+'s I've purchased since, have only gotten 2300-2400mhz stable, but did an easy 2200mhz at near stock voltages.
