Which Processor for Laptop

How long is a piece of string I hear some of you cry.

But all I need to know is on a budget laptop costing around £400 (just under) I seem to have the choice of a few different processors. The laptop I am considering is a Toshiba click here with an AMD Turion 64 X2 but also there are laptops with Intel chipsets too for the same price.

Can anyone tell me are the Intel or AMD as good as each other, or is there one that is known to be much better?

Thanks for any advice

Depends what you want to use it for, technically Intel have an advantage over AMD at the moment, but for 99% of applications you aren't going to notice the difference.
