yea but i'm not to thrilled about the machine's graphics, but since i've always been partial to Intel, I'd have to say go with the Centrino Duo.

If the intel is using the yohna core or one of the other new ones, I'd have to say go with intel. But dell probably won't tell you what core it's using...

Id assume its the newest becuase the 6400 notebook just got released by dell on March 1st. So i would guess it has the newest core.

Yes, I've done some research, that is indeed using a yohna-based cpu, I'd get it.

yeah the intel has an onboard 950 graphics accelerator, while the amd has an x600!
So i guess graphics goes to amd, but cpu speed wise, is the amd better or the intel? and by how far of a margin?

Thanks,

EDIT*** Also the amd is 4.1cm thick and about 7.5lbs!
the dell is alot smaller and lighter.
So which should it be?
