    Which is better for performance:

    · Intel® Pentium® Dual Core Processor T2330 (1.60GHz, 533MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache) and with the GMA X3100 graphics card

    or

    AMD Turion™ 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 (2.0GHz, 512KBx2 L2 Cache, HyperTransport™ technology at up to 1600MHz) and with the ATI Radeon X1270 graphics card

    Both would be running 2GB of ram.

    Thanks, I am buying an inexpensive laptop for a 2nd computer for my kids.

    Asking for PC (Windows) advice on a Mac site? Good thing you don't have to post your address. ;)

    But expected, since this is posted in Apple Hardware / Buying Tips, Advice and Discussion. You'll probably generate less sarcastic responses if this were in Community Discussion.

    To be fair, you can't really get a quality response to this unless the full laptops were known, so that all factors can be considered.

    Go with the AMD. The 64 is the equivalent of a c2d, while the dual core is a cd processor. Besides that, the ATI card > the GMA card.

    So if you had a choice between an intel core 2 duo vs the AMD, the intel processor is a better choice?
