Default processor speed?

Is there a list of processors listed to show least to most powerful for laptops? I find myself getting a little confused with all the c2d T4200 and T3400 and however many other combos there are.

thanks!

Default Graphics card and accelerators

Are the standard "graphics accelerators" able to play games? Also, is there a ranking list for laptop video cards?

Default Re: processor speed?

http://www.techist.com/forums/f84/la...g-list-165525/ is the graphics card ranking.

there isn't a real good one that I've seen for laptop processors, but generally the higher the numerical value on the label, i.e. t2400 vs t3700, the faster it is, but granted a high end t2xxx is going to be faster than the lowest end t3xxx model.
