I am trying to choose between 2 laptops which cost the same but have different processors. Can anyone advise if the difference between a Core Duo T2350 at 1.86mhz and a Core 2 Duo T5500 at 1.66mhz, with the other specifications being the same eg 1gb memory and Home Premium, would be noticeable?
Thanks

Without going into reading the architecture of the chips, the one thing i find that makes the T5500 chip a bit faster is that it runs on a 667 Mhz bus while the T2350 runs on a 533 Mhz bus. That alone would convince me to go for the T5500.

There is also this.

In 2007, Intel began branding the Yonah core CPUs as Pentium Dual-Core intended for lower-end mobile only computers, unlike the 64-bit Core microarchitecture CPUs branded as Intel Core 2 Duo (for higher-end computers) and also as Pentium Dual-Core (for lower-end desktops only). In short, the Core brand refers to processors with the "mobile" derivative of 32-bit Intel P6 microarchitecture (preceding the Core microarchitecture), whereas the Intel Core 2 Duo brand refers to CPUs with the 64-bit Core microarchitecture.
