Hello Everyone

I had an Acer Aspire 1670 which had 512mb of RAM and a Pentium 4 3GHz processor.

Unfortunately I spilt water on it and my insurance compnay are replacing it. Whilst browsing the net for alternative replacements, I am struggling to find a 3 GHz processor. Not knowing a lot about computers, are the new 1-2 GHz Pentium M processors comparable to a 3 GHz Pentium 4?

Any Pentimu-M rater at 1.7ghz or above is easily capable of matching a regular 3mhz.

It will run cooler and with 512mb RAM will be a pleasant computing experience.

thanks very much. Will it be capable of running movie capturing software via firewire?
