the athlon is faster but the pentium is bullit proof

I'm pretty sure the 4200 is a cut down chip of the full chip. (Not sure what model though)

If this is in a computer you are looking at buying the full specs of the 2 machines would be more helpful as a stonking CPU in a crap machine will equal a PC slower than an ok CPU in a kick **** machine (most of the time) :)

If it was me, I would take the T4200 with the extra 1Gb of RAM. 320gb of hard drive space is more than adequate

For a laptop I would go with the AMD if you're going to be running vista... my bro has a pentium C2D on his lappy with vista and it is really slow (admittedly only 1.6 or 1.8Ghz dual core), but my niece bought a new lappy recently and it's only a single core AMD CPU and runs much faster in vista even though it's only one core. BTW my bro's lappy runs fine using ubuntu, but still only just about on par with my niece's lappy.

32 bit OS will only use around 3.5GB of RAM.... so IMO the 4GB isn't needed in a 32 bit OS anyway.

Cpu chart there.

According to that the Intel whoops the athlon on that test

the lastest update for vista now means 32bit will read the full 4gb, likewise with windows 7 round the corner.
Although for general usage 3GB will suffice.

Personally id probably go for the AMD as the dual cores are ok, but the Core 2 Duo is what you want if going pentium route as theyre much better.
