You might want to provide us with a bit more info than speed alone <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

That depends on who manufactures the chip. If it's an AMD chip, 1.6 isn't terrible, but certainly outdated. If it's an Intel chip, it's time to upgrade. A 2.2 GHz AMD chip would be OK for current computing, but still a bit behind the times.<br />
<br />
Either way an upgrade is in your near future. If you can, please fill out your system specs under User CP to better help us help you.

</div>I take it this is for a laptop purchase then?<br />
<br />
I would go for the Centrino Duo since it is dual core and based upon the new core2duo architecture <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

I need some 121 support with some laptops, I know quite a lot about computers etc. as I work in PC World PC Clinic, I'm just a bit hopeless at processors.

I'm not very knowledgable about the laptop processors, but I was under the impression that the Turions were dual-core as well?<br />
<br />
Either way, the Centrino Duo should have the higher ops per cycle like the Core 2 Duos... right?

I have a 1.66GHz Core Duo in my laptop and it is plenty fast. Love the dual core as well. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> It is roughly as fast as my 3.0GHz P4 at stock speeds.

Actully , it's the core2duos's architecture that is based in centrino's and PIII's ones, but that apart , the centrino dual core would kill that turion.<br />
It has been proven that Intel's mobile processors are much better than AMD ones.In everithing

</div>I am making a few assumptions here but I imagine the Intel is a T2050 1.6ghz Core Duo CPU (2MB L2) vs AMD Turion 64 ML-40 Processor 2.2GHz (1MB L2) single core.<br />
<br />
no contest in my opinion. Core Duo.
