Thread: Should I Buy "centrino"?

  1. #1
    I want to buy a laptop computer but i'm not sure what kind, maybe you can help.

    -"Centrino" is it any good?
    -What is better "Pentium 1.6 Centrino 1M" or "Pentium 4 2.4"?



    thanks.

    Centrino is slower, but its designed for laptops so it should have a much lower power consumption - i think that's the basics

    I think it weighs less also.

    admittedly, I dont' know much about laptops, but I don't think the weight of the CPU is going to differ much, or be noticably
    heavier if it does.

    Go for the fastest one.

    After it's been on for a while you can use it to fry eggs also.

    it's not for games and movies, mainly for office work with software like matlab and max+plus.

    is the "centrino" as good as the pentium 4?

    Centrino is not a type of CPU, it is a set of technologies in the motherboard chipset designed for laptops. It uses less electricity and is lighter - I&#39;m not sure about how it affects performance. I think Centrino laptops tend to have wireless networking capabilities.

    If you&#39;ve got plenty of cash, it might be worth going Centrino with your laptop, but if you don&#39;t have a wad of cash to splash out on a laptop, go with something cheaper.
