Is it worth £15 to get a 1.86ghz processor over a 1.6ghz? Will I notice any difference? It will me matched to 2gb RAM using Vista on a laptop.

Should mention they are both Celeron

No, you really won't notice the difference. You MIGHT spot a difference in a benchmarking app, but even then it will be tiny.

Given that it is probably not the most recent or high-specced laptop, put your money to one side, and spend it on the next machine you purchase.
