2.Acer aspire 7003wsmi AMD sempron3400+ 1.8GHz processor 512 ddr,120gig HD.NVidia gforce Go6100 128 mb shared memory. 17 crystal bright screen
What is difference between AMD mobile turion and the sempron processors.Is the 7003 worth the extra money?

The turion is by far the better processor over the sempron.

If it was my choice, I would pick the 5101wimi over the other one, just for the cpu.
