  1. Hi All,

    I am planning to buy a Dell laptop in a couple of days. I have a chioce between these two processors:

    1) Intel Pentium®M Processor 745(1.80 GHz/2MB L2/400MHz FSB)
    2) Intel Pentium®M Processor 755(2 GHz/2MB L2/ 400MHz FSB)

    Other things remaining the same, the first option will save me 200$. Do you think that it is worth paying 200$ extra for the extra bit of clock speed? I am buying my laptop for studies. I'll have it do complex tasks on large survey datasets (sometimes as big as 250 MB) using mathematical/statistical software. The laptop will have a 1GB DDR SDRAM (2 DIMM).

    Please reply with your suggestions as soon as possible. Thanks

    the peformance difference won't bee too great, given the identical subsystems. i say, save that 200 bucks and use it for something else. for schoolwork you won't miss that extra 200MHz of core speed.
