I'm looking into buying a Inspiron laptop and I'm torn between these 2. I'm curious as to the differences performance wise between the Pentium M 1.6 and the Pentium 4 3.2. I know the Pentium M is supposed to perform beyond its clock speed but wonder what the real world numbers are. I'm willing to sacrifice SOME power for the extra battery life but not so much to where its a substantial difference. Also wondering about the difference between the Radeon 9700 as apposed to the 9600. The 9700 isn't an option on the 8600 but is on the 9100. Thanks for helping me out!
