bit of advice.. if you stick with that one, get rid of mcaffee as soon as you can and download yourself a copy of AVG, Spybot, Adaware, firefox, and zonealarm.. tweaknow and/or ewido would be nice too... mcafee sucks in my opinion O_o

Are they both laptops?

If you plan on leaving a mains point at any time go withthe Intel.

Both will cope well for those tasks. I will probally still go for the AMD, but if the Duo is a dual core it will be a tough choice.

i hate to say it but go for the intel. the dual core wins in this case. the thing is though i'm betting that consumes a fair bit of power.
