I'm interested in purchasing a notebook with one of the new Intel CULV chips. I know MSI just came out with a notebook with a CULV chip but I'm looking a lot at Acer and ASUS, specifically the Acer 3810T and ASUS UX30.
I did some research and went to Intel's site though and found it hard to research the various CULV chips. If I'm right speed in general varies from 1.2GHz to 1.6GHz and you can get it in either a Celeron version, Single Core (Solo) and Dual Core.
Currently I have an ASUS eeePC 1000HE with the Atom N280 running at 1.66 Ghz.
Even though these chips only go up to 1.6GHz they would still be faster than an N280, right?
Also, I am looking heavily at the Core 2 Duo SU9400 and SU9600.
Would a Dual Core at a slower clock speed than a Single Core at a higher clock speed be faster?
Also, what type of graphics should I look for on a notebook? I won't be doing heavy graphics work on it but will be using multitasking and have 3-4GB memory and want to be able to use it well with Windows 7.
