Default Did i make a wrong buying choice?

I have 3 laptops:
A Crappy 6-month old $600 Dell
a 9-month old $3000 Sager laptop and
a 2-week old $2500 MacBook Pro

I bought the Dell to take on trips/to work with me because if it get's stolen or lost, i only lose a $600 laptop.

I'm wondering: When i got it(My Dell), i had the option of getting either a Mobile Celeron 2.2GhZ(which i got) or a Celeron M 1.3-.1.4Ghz, my question is: Did i make the wrong decision in getting the 2.2Ghz Mobile Celeron?

Thanks

I don't see why, no. It's faster.

depends on wat you use the laptop for and how much the price difference was.

he needed it for work, so it wasn't much of a choice in that domain.

since it was only 50 bucks, you're fine, but it tends to use battery up faster and runs hotter, which might decrease the lifespan of the components inside (not significantly). other than that, it was a good choice
