Please advise, as I have just received a replacement for my previuos Laptop which was a Tosh Satellite. My new Laptop has an intel core 2 duo T5450 processor rather than a intel core 2 duo T5500, and I would like to know whether the lower intel processor (T5450) would be same or similar and would not make much difference to the laptop operation speeds.
So far as I can see they are exactly the same except for one thing. The T5500 is designed for the older 945 based 'Napa' motherboards and the T5450 is for the newer 965 'Santa Rosa' ones. Therefore if you had to chose between two laptops with them, the T5450 would be better as it would come with a newer version of 'Centrino' (ie Santa Rosa).
