Hi folks

I am about to go & buy my first laptop and was wondering if there is any difference between getting one with a Intel Pentium processor or an AMD Athlon one ???

Any thoughts/advice gratefully received...

Thanks.

Whatever you do, get one with a proper mobile processor version. Ones with destop processors get far too hot and cause problems in my experience.

The Centrino technology models are particularly good.
