I have been trying to pin down the right choice for an entry level laptop. The only choice I have made is that I will buy it from the nearest warehouse club store as it has the best extended warranty at a good price. Looking at two models one has a Intel Celeron M processor 370 but just one 1MB of L2 cache, the FSB is 400MHz. The other is a Intel Pentium M 740 with 2mb L2 cache. It has a 1.73 GHz 533MHZ FSB but I understand that the cpu drops down to under 1GHz to conserve battery power. One has DDR2 the other DDR3. Which of these specs is the most important in making a choice? Will the DDR2 be a future hindrance? Is the Celeron M a better processor given that laptop is more expensive or is there very little difference between and a Celeron M or Pentium M? IS the difference in FSB of great consequence? Does less cache denote a weakness?
