How much difference will this make?

How much difference will i really notice with this Intel Core 2 Duo T5800
Processor speed 2GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB Cache against this Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor T3400(2 GHz, 667 MHz, 1 MB Cache)

As i prefer the laptop with the lower spec processor but am nervous as to whether it wont perform or last aswell?!

I doubt you would notice much difference at all.

Really? How important is the FSB and cache these days? It seems its not just the speed anymore??
P.s. sorry it should say T3200 not T3400 i think..

If your comparisons had been between Intel and AMD, then I would have said go for Intel - but both yours are Intel, so that is why I said that you probably would not notice a great deal of difference between the two.
