Probably, for once, the AMD. 800Mhz vs 3.2 Ghz. I didn't even know dual cores could go as low as 800, the smallest I've ever seen was 1.5Ghz, and that was about 4 years ago when dual cores were just coming out.

im confused tho...the actual processors are comparable at 2.1 ghz for amd to 2.0 for the intel.

the cache being 1mb vs 2mb for the amd vs intel seems to be a bif difF? but then again i dont understand it

Maybe you should hold a seance and ask the Spirit of the Bunny to advise you?

According to this site, their benchmark scores are about the same:

Intel Core2 Duo T5800 @ 2.00GHz -1157

AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M320 -1197

The 800MHz is the Front Side Bus speed (memory bus), not the CPU clock.

And according to this site:

Notebookcheck: Mobile Processors - Benchmarklist

also similar benchmarks, and both at 35 Watts.
