i would suggest getting the 2400+ it is only 200mhz less than a barton 2800+,
Yeah but the barton cores have 512k L2 Cache which the Thoroughbred cores don't have which the 2400+ is a T-bred...unless which I think I just realized you meant the mobile which in this case you really should specify that you mean the 35w 2400+ XP-M as it's insanely different from the 2400+ XP..... I didn't see a mobile 2800+ I saw a 3000+ though....weird...
Anywho, the 2400+-2600+XP-M's are all good OC'ing choices infact it seems that the 2600+XP-M's can obtain higher OC's on less voltage especially if you look at 4W4K3's signature, he has same mobo as me, different ram and the 2600+ XP-M and he has same OC but way less voltage..
EDIT: ive looked for a cheaper xp-m2400+ and if you're not averse to using ebay there is an item on there that has 2 days left but is only at 19 dollars, being as newegg price on it has jumped(i got it for 83 shipped).
here's the link(if this is illegal then a mod can just remove it, im not trying to break rules just help someone out)
No that's not illegal, and yeah I can't believe neweggs insane price increase cause I got it $87 and now it's at $101!! That's just insane, a lot of people musta been wantin them...
Anywho, the dealer on e-bay has 97% good reviews so I'd say they are reputable, but he's selling the 45w 2400+ XP-M not the 35w and you really want the 35w, but damn for $20 that's a hard deal to pass up
