Default amd vs intel

As far as laptop processors go, whats the huge difference? I understand the C2D will be faster but will it be a ton faster than the AMD processors? As I said in my other thread, I will only be doing light gaming... up to call of duty 2 so I mean, would an amd maybe be a better route to go?

For a laptop i would go with whatever is cheaper. You arent really going to be overclocking a laptop so the amd system is probably the way to go.

Nothing to see here.

It depends what kind of deal you are getting.

I'd say if the AMD was around 300-400mhz faster than the C2D at the same price then go with the AMD...otherwise C2D all the way
