  1. Is there much difference between the T4400 and the T6600?

    Pentium T4400 - 2200 MHz, 1 MB L2 Cache, 800 MT/s FSB, 35 W TDP, Socket P, Q4 2009

    Core 2 Duo T6600 - 2200 MHz, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MT/s FSB, 35 W TDP, Socket P, Q1 2009

    i think the T6600 is faster

    the additional cache on the t6600 will make it a little bit faster.

    but that's what i'm not sure about. Is it just going to give me better battery life or something? Maybe a 5% improvement in performance i suppose

    depends on what you use the laptop for. More cache is used for photo, video editing, gaming, Less cache for word processing, web surfing, ect.

    The problem is 3/4 of the time - web, office documents. The other 1/4 will be video editing, but the video is pretty important when it is needed.

    I'm not sure about the T4400, but any of the new desktop Pentium Dual Cores, (up to E-6600) are actually Wolfdale cores anyway.

    I think the new Pent Mobiles are the, "Processor formerly known as Penryn".

    Point being, that the T-6600 is an older release (Q1-09), it's the same speed, but with a larger L2 cache (2MB vs 1MB) http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37255&processor=T6600&spec-codes=SLGF5

    The T-4400 wasn't launched until Q4 '09, and it's 45 nm. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=40739

    Whether named Pentium or C2D, these are BOTH Penryn cores.
