Anyway, this is the one I think I will buy:http://www.webhallen.com/prod.php?id=32903
Swedish, but the price in USD -> (1 992,24 USD)
But, it's only 1,5 but I think its enough for me, maybe I can overclock it a bit?
Atleast to 1,6?
My advice is don't even think about OCing the cpu. Laptops, even the best of them, are destined to BAD cooling. The components are so closely packed together that more heat from the cpu will heat up everything in there. heat is enemy #1 to the Li-Ion battery. Furthermore, getting the cpu from 1.5 to 1.6 you will NOT even notice the difference. A noticeable difference you may expect by going from 1.5 to 2.0 Dothan but there is no way you can overclock Dothan that much. Actually, now that you mentioned it - I have never heard of a Dothan clocking utility. I don't think there is one. But even if there is somewhere out there, it is simply not worth the risk.
Most people here, who have an idea about a thing or two, prefer to buy the 1.7 Dothan because it is the best bang for the buck - 1.8 is 150 more but the gain of 0.1GHz is UNNOTICEABLE to human senses, only to picky benchmarks, the 2.0 is simply way too expensive now but even it will not blow your mind compared to the 1.7 Dothan. Buy getting/upgrading 1GB of RAM you will improve the performance of your laptop much more than OCing the cpu by 0.1-0.2 GHZ.
Gamers need a fast GPU and at least 1GB RAM because cpu power is not of great importance, pretty minimal actually, for gaming.
In one word - OC desktops not laptops. Cooling is alredy a problem with laptops you can only make it worse with no noticeable gain in performance.
Hope this helps.
