    AMD processors > Celeron.

    AMD are more efficient. They have a dual core design

    60GB hard drive is pretty big for a laptop.

    Good RAM for a laptop, and decent caceh size.

    It looks worth it to me.

    Try to never ever get a celeron chip, they suck for crack rocks. AMD are more power efficient than Intel processors.. i know more about it but i can't remember. I done the course in system architecture last year and cant remember now.

    not every AMD processor is dual core dude

    and in terms of power saving, there are many other factors that come into play other than processor type

    I'd go with either a centrino or a sempron in terms of processors

    what are you looking to do with this laptop?

    "D" = desktop
    "M" = mobile.

    Processors give off heat. Too much heat and you risk your laptop wearing out and breaking before it's time. You CAN put a desktop processor in a laptop to get the faster speeds, but the M processors are designed to operate efficiently in a laptop and are designed to minimize the amount of heat it gives off. Remember - Heat is bad

    Stick with the lower M speeds and put the most ram and the fastest video that you can afford.

    Also, get a Turion with built in wireless or a Pentium-M with Centrino technology. You'll get hassle free connections at the hot spot and it makes War Driving a breeze

    ^ it is AMD Turion 64 ML28 1.6GHz

    but i was just thinking is 1.6Ghz not a tad small as they pushing out the 3GHz and greater these days ?
