  1. Hello

    I'm buying a new notebook and would like some seconed opinion about the cpu

    Don't know what to take. Have my eye on one of these 2 but don't know what to take from here on

    have the Q9000 intel model or the T9800. The funny part is that cpu power wise the q9000 takes the lead but t9800 is more expensive and more in like 190$ more...
    So personaly i'm more into q9000 but as i said like to know if any1 from you guys knows the trick behainde the price < performence.


    Well these are the 2 speccs i'm after

    I would just look at the memory and the cooling channels, and get a verry long warranty.

    Main difference between the laptops is just the processor speeds..... the Q is way newer but that version of the Q is a lot slower than the T. The T is faster and thus more expensive. Check out the specs below:

    The T9800 is a Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor that has 6Mb of L2 Cache and runs at 2.93 GHz with a 1066 MHz bus.

    The Q9000 is a Intel® Core™2 Quad Mobile Processor that has 6Mb of L2 Cach and runs at 2 GHz with a 1066 MHz bus.

    Fromwhat i see from those links above the only diffrence is some antyvirus protection that T has and Q doesen't, but q has a lot more power for that and more speed
