Hewlett Packard DV2000 laptop - which processor ?

  Daibus 11:05 31 Jul 2006

I am considering buying an HP DV2000 laptop which is one the laptops in their new range.

At the moment, here in Spain I can only get the DV2031 model which has the AMD Turion 64x2 TL-52 Processor and not the Intel Core Duo T2400 which can be an option, when available. I have read that some people think the Turion 64x2 is inferior to the Intel Core Duo as far as battery life and performance goes.

Any opinions would be very helpful.

As far as I understand the Core Duo will be more power efficient. But the Turion is 64bit ready so therefore is better in that respect. Both are dual cores so that doesnt set them appart but the Core duo is no 64bit so not as future proofed.

Correction - Core Duo CPUs running on the Sossaman core have - like Pentium 4 775s - EMT64 extensions.

No they dont. Its an emulator. Thats like saying Dgen is a gameboy!

EMT is quite sufficient and can hardly be described in the manner that you have used. click here

It is a 32bit processor no matter how you look at it. It is like saying dgen is a gameboy. It allows the processor to act as a stepping stone to 64bit apps but doesnt have the advantages of 64bit.

Without getting too technical about it, the core duo would be my first choice for a new lappy.

Ask yourself this, do you need a 64 bit cpu specifically?
