    For all intents and purposes, they are basically the same thing, with the exception that the Core 2 duo is 25% faster on average (if the core duo is tied with the amd equivalent, and the core 2 duo is 25% faster than that same amd chip, it is logically 25% faster than the core duo chip as well) and that the Core 2 duo has EM64T (64 bit memory controller).

    Windows Vista 64 bit will have some added benefits over 32 bit. As such, I want to make sure my laptop can at least stay futureproof for the next few years.
