hmmmmmmm.......that makes it pretty even i think, i know my friend playsalot of the new games on his thinkpad with a 7500 and it plays fine, i was playing prince of persio sot on it and it looked pretty darn good
what do you mean much slower? will you notice the difference in performance i really dont think soo, i think thats a big problem with computer manufacturers, they concentrate to much on proccesor speed, i think processors are way over...
asus m6bne or m6n, i bought mine for 1800 with gig of ram 1.6 p-m 60 ig 5400 rpm hd 15.4 widescreen, 9700 64mb radeon, seondary battery and cdrw/dvd drive, if you take of one 512 diim of ram and second batt its about 1550
honestly dont notice any differnce unlesss your ripping a dvd or something then you can notice by how long it takes, but honestly in my opinion anyhing over a gig is good. 1.5 is as fast as you will need for quie some time.
