Help Choose a Processor and Laptop
I'm looking at a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440 right now. I have the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7200 (2GHz) selected, but I'm not sure whether or not to select the Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7400 (2.16GHz) for an extra $200. The standard they start me off at is Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5500 (1.66GHz). If I selected the T5500, it would subtract $350. I'm buying this for when I go off to college, I wont be doing too much gaming on it, so I was wondering what would be the best selection for value. I'm not sure how much of a difference there is between the 3 processors that I have put up. Even though it still is a core duo, will a T5500 be slow still basically?
And on a second note, if I do select the T7200, my specifications will come out to be:
Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7400 (2.16GHz)
2 GB DDR-SDRAM (DDR2-533, 1 GBx2)
160 GB Hard Disk Drive
13.3" WXGA Display With XBRITE™ Technology
MOTION EYE Camera
DVD+-R DL_DVD+-RW_DVD-RAM Drive
Integrated Biometric Fingerprint Sensor
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
2 Year Express Ship Service Plan for Notebooks
for a price of $2075.99.
Does anyone know any other laptops that can get me basically the same specs for a cheaper price or better specs for the same price? The only that drives me towards this is because it's a Sony, Fingerprint Sensor, and the screen size, but that is not a big deal because I will be getting a HDTV/Monitor.
