[size="6"][size="4"]Hey guys.. I have read a bunch of different reviews about what people think are the best processors out there. I find This site usually has the most knowledgable people so i thought i would post here. I am in the market of looking for a new laptop. Most sites seem to say the it is now the Intel Duo Core processor that has taken the lead over AMD processors... is this an accurate statement? I have also been told when buying a new computer to stay away from the Duo Core T3xxx and T5xxx processors because they will soon be outdated and stick with at leaste a T7xxx processor. How accurate is that piece of advice?

I understand that the processor is the main piece to look at when buying a ney laptop.. any advice as to what i should be looking at? or does anybody know of a good machine for a good price?

Thank you for your help

Laptops are generally slower because the hard drives run slower. Therefore the processor becomes pretty much irrelevant and a laptop will never out perform a desktop.
What you've been told generally applies to desktop PCs thought it can apply to laptops too. Realistically most laptop processors end up being underclocked anyway for reasons of battery life.
