2 processors-How do i find out which one is best?

  buel 22:46 10 Dec 2009

Hi, i have my eye on 2 seperate Medion laptops but i would like to know which one has the best processor:
The Medion Akoya S5610 has a 2ghz Intel core 2 duo mobile P7350 (Laptop price £500)
The Medion Akoya P8610 has a 2ghz Intel core 2 duo mobile T5800(Laptop price £700)

Now, in the past, i have been advised to take a look in Google for my answers and then, if i dont have any luck, try on this wonderful site. I have tried Google but to be honest i haven't got the slightest clue where to compare both processors so id really appreciate a bit of help if you could?

I googled 'processor speed' or somethinng similar ad got a very useful benchmarking site a few weeks ago when I was comparing laptop processors - sorry can't remember the site name

I checked the CPU numbers on this site (click here)

The P7350 highlighted here (scroll to near the bottom) (click here) seems to be a high end CPU, while the T5800 highlighted here (click here) seems to be a mid range CPU.

I'm no expert on CPU's but it would seem the P7350 would be slightly faster/better than the T5800, are you sure about the prices you mention? I would imagine the The Medion Akoya S5610 to be the more expensive machine, but this assumption is based on the processor alone. Perhaps the The Medion Akoya P8610 has a better feature set, i.e. graphics and hard drive size.

2ghz Intel core 2 duo mobile P7350 is way better

Thanks for that my friends, that is some excellent advice!! Ok, after 6 months worth of deliberating i have FINALLY made the plunge and went for the refurbished S5610, link here:
