I am trying to help my mum decide which new laptop to buy. We have narrowed it down to 3 possibilities:
Fujitsu Esprimo V6535
Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D-21U Laptop
Acer TravelMate 5720-4A2G16Mi Laptop
The important factors for her are that it runs smoothly - so 2GB RAM minimum, a decent processor, either has or could have XP (not Vista) and as light weight as possible - all at a low price (Â£400ish).
Our main problem is that we do not know what the difference between an Intel Core 2 Duo and an AMD Core 2 Duo. She mainly uses the laptop for email, internet, photos, films, Excel, Word, etc. Is there a massive difference in performance at this level of usage?
I hope this is clear enough. We would be very grateful for any advice.
