Hi. I am about to buy a Laptop as a replacement for my desktop (A very good one but takes up too much room). I have found 2 that I like. One has a Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 3Ghz processor, with SpeedStep Technology. The other has an Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz with hyper thread (whatever that is)Can anybody out there tell me the best one please. I am not bothered about battery time. The computer is used for the web, general computing and the odd game by my grandson. Thank you, Dennis
