Question Pentium M or Sempron for a laptop?

What would be better? The Sempron 2800+ (1.6Ghz think)
( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115301 )
or the Pentium M 1.5GHz
( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115186 )?

Which is a better deal? (Provided I did a $120 ram upgrade on the Sempron one)
Edit: -Note the 300 dollar price difference. I am on a budget too.
Could I upgrade the 4 cell battery in the sempron to something better?

I tried finding benchmarks, but no sucess.

Thanks, Sevoma

The pentium M assuming you will take a slightly lower peforming PC in trade for battery life

So the Sempron would be faster?

If your going for performance, the Pentium M. Its extra 256 will help you along.

Of course, you could just upgrade the ram in the Sempron... but that will cost... $100?

I'd go Sempron, upgrade to 512 corsair SO-DIMMS (Assuming it supports it... I dont know), and then sell the extra stick.

Thats me, and I just glanced. Your preference.

And dont upgrade without asking acer if you can.

I've looked for batteries for the Acer Aspire 3000 series, but nothing. The tiny 4 cell pack gives power for 1.5 hours on optimal conditions. That is bad. Could I get a 8 or 12 cell possibly?

you can get extra batteries I think...

No clue though. It would proabbly be expensive, to the point where you might as well buy a more expensive laptop.
