A64 or Core Duo???

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'm looking into getting a new laptop, and i was looking at this. But then i found a Core Duo for the same price with a better vid card.

I Despise Intel, but if i get another core, and a X1400 GFX card, i'll get it.

But performance wise: anyone have performance issues with the Duo?
