Question Intel Duo T2050 or AMD Turion 64 TL-50?

I am looking to get a laptop for my wife and have not kept up with processors recently. Anyone recommend one of these over the other? They both are 1.6 ghz, but that is basically the only thing they have in common. I have never gove with an AMD machine, but have hear/seen good things. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Core Duo would be the best.

I sell lappies with both processors at my work, the Turion one is a little bit faster (i benchmarked most of them) and it will run cooler too, which is a plus for laptops.

I would go with the Intel T5500 if possible. It retails for the same price as the AMD TL50.
