Default Is there a huge difference between...

a P4 3.0GHZ, and 3.2 GHZ? because I'm buying a new laptop, and I want to know if it is worth the extra $100 bucks?

also what is the difference between a 530 3.0GHZ, and a 630 GHZ 3.0GHZ

Not really. It would be hardly note worthy. Should just come of a few points more, and is not worth the extra money. You should be just fine with 3.0 Ghz.

It means you need a lappy with a Turion in it.

Yeah, the 6** chips are EMT64 chips, however the older 5** are faster clock for clock in most enviroments

The difference in 200MHz, especially on the Netburst architecture, is incredibly insignificant, and a 3GHz core can easily be overclocked beyond 3.2GHz

Huh? The Turion is the AMD counterpart to the Pentium M, it's a low power usage processor

Exactly. A 64-bit, low voltage mobile processor.

AMD rocks!
