actually they don't. and the xp 2800+ IS faster than all semprons except the 3100+ since the 3100+ is socket 754. the sempron 3000+ is socket A and the 2800+ beats it.

in that article the celeron 315, intels lowest celeron offering, with a clock speed of 2.26Ghz BEATS the sempron 2500+, which is supposed to be equivalent to a 2.5Ghz intel cpu. dj chris is right the sempron has half the cache of the athlon xp, so therefore is slower.

AMD is true: the Sempron is faster in the two benchmarks they used (Winstone and SYSmark). But we have just carried out a more comprehensive testing session, which says that the Celeron D is often better than the Sempron in real-life tasks. We found our own “performance ratings” of the processors by calculating the average of the processor’s relative speeds in the 27 benchmarks we used. The results are normalized to those of the Intel Celeron 2.8:
incase you didn't notice, AMD and Intel alike are always trying to say that their cpu is better than the other, that is why you never trust benchmarks posted on either company's site. always look at benchmarks done on independent sites like xbit labs, or toms hardware guide, etc.

Desktop specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2500+@ 200x11 - EPoX 8rda3I - Thermaltake 420watt silent PSU - 2x512MB PNY PC3200(DualChannel) - TT HSF - PNY 5900SE, 128MB DDR, 256-bit - - Toshiba SD-R5002: DVD-RW - NEC DVD-RW - 2 Antec 80mm fans - 1 Delta 92mm fan - 1 Antec 120mm fan- 1 TT 120mm fan - Windows XP Pro - WD special edition 80GB 7200 RPM- Seagate 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB cache - Onboard Sound - Onboard Ethernet

Notebook specs:
ACER Travel Mmate 4000LCi - Intel Pentium M 710 - 15\" XGA TFT - 512MB DDR333 - 40 GB HD - DVD-rom/CD-RW Drive - WLAN 802.11b/g - Winxp Home - Intel Extreme Graphics - Average Battery Life: 4-5 hours - 6.4 lbs

if switch is right about the screen size than I would get the XP-m laptop. a celeron probably gets longer battery life than an XP-m but since it's screen is bigger that probably makes them about equal battery life. Avertec doesn't seem like a good company to go with though.

That one's a no-brainer! Definitely go with AMD!

A mobile AMD gets much better battery life vs a vanilla celeron.

Definatly the AMD, unless you want more to jeperdise(sp?) performance for battery life.
