    You'll currently pay a lot more for a mobile C2D processor with very little noticeable benefit. Considering his intended use, I can't see the justification in spending more than you've already indicated.

    I'm interested to know the spec on the T2050 processor, Intel don't seem to even acknowledge that they make it, but I notice it is in quite a few notebooks.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Go for core duo, it will be much cheaper and he will barely notice the performance drop
