Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a 17" laptop with 2Gb memory and at least 120 hard drive. Looking for something around the £500 mark. But as a 'not very techy' person I'm getting a bit bamboozled by the different processors on offer. Can someone explain which one to go for between Intel 2 duo, Intel dual core and AMD x64. I'll basically be using the laptop to surf web, store pics and music and maybe play the odd game such as Football manager. Realisticall will I really see much difference in performance between those 3 processors? Thanks for your help guys

Probably about the best you can get in that price range will be the Intel Core 2 Duo, TRFC1. I don't plays games on my PC or laptop so I can't advise you on that point.

One post is sufficient, TRFC1. click here
