The CPU in the Laptop isnt a Core Duo as the title suggests. Its a Pentium Dual Core, which I have believe is the replacement for the old Celeron processors.

Not bad if you want a cheap laptop for your emails and internet I guess.

Its a Pentium Dual Core which is basically the same as a Core 2 Duo. No difference really at all. Just another one of intel's very werid labelling schemes.

Bunkum as in nonsense my dear friend. The dual-core pentiums and core 2 duos are based on different architectures and the latter outperforms the former.

The T2330 Pentium Dual Core processor does use the Core architecture, more specifically the 65nm Merome core. Compared to a Core 2 Duo processor at the same speed (such as the T5450) it runs at a slower 533Mhz FSB (rather than 667Mhz FSB) and it has half the L2 cache at 1MB.

It's not a bad processor for the money as it will offer good all round performance although the 'high spec' mentioned in the deal title is inaccurate, this is an entry level/budget machine machine in terms of spec.

This Dual Core is exactly the same architecture as a Core 2 Duo.
Less cache but that hardly matters for a laptop.

Know what you are saying before you talk 'Bunkum'

2 year warrany too makes it a very reasonable buy.

OK then NONSENSE
The Conroe chips utilize a much more advanced manufacturing process and a brand new design scheme called the Intel Core Microarchitecture. The Pentium D is based on Intel's older, more power-hungry NetBurst architecture. The Conroe chip is about 40 percent faster than the Pentium D while consuming 40 percent less power. The Merom chips are about 20 percent faster than the older Core Duo laptop chips at the same power level.

IMHO This is better value for money.

LOL... sorry but i do find that a little bit humorous :-D

Has this got a glossy screen and what's the software side like? (i.e. does it come with a windows disk, how much installed rubbish is there, does it have any buttons that use their own software and what's it like?)

I am afraid you might have got it wrong.

This is not a Pentium D.

This is a Pentium Dual Core which is based on the Core architecture. It is just a budget version of the Core 2 Duo with 1Mb cache and a slower FSB. Good performance for the money.

:thumbsup:

might is a bit of an understatement.


Not that Mr 'Bunkum' will ever do any research

The intel T2330 (SLA4K part number LF80537GE0251M) according to Intel is not C2D based ]http//pr…A4K go figure???

Says nothing of the sort.


Now why does CPU-Z , Wikipaedia and loads and loads of tech sites say it is Core 2 based.

Ento is right and the world is wrong.

The older T2300's were not core based grandad.

In fact there are very few non Core based CPUs left in production.
Even the Celerons are core architecture.

Alright Ento....
This is a forum to display deals to users that some people may be intrested in! Not to debate about Intel's different chips. It says its a Pentium Dual Core which is infact what it is! So if someone wanted to research the Pentium Dual Core, they would do so.

Well said...

Battle Ended! :w00t:

Yeah hot, the processor maybe the runt of the core 2 duo litter (Less cache, lower FSB) but excellent CPU and more than capable for a laptop

Definitely core 2 duo architecture btw

I do believe the comparison with celeron - sorry, voted cold & expired - the item in the title is not the item on offer. As for the ins & outs, I believe that the processors are the same as CD/C2D, but with half the cache - don't know, but seems like a bad idea (just like Celeron).

Yikes! Me and my big mouth!

Not your fault - I think I was one of the first to compare PD to Celeron - wonder why Intel would drop the Celeron name?

But how can this be the new celeron if they still make a sell celeron chips? (almost all budget lappy's in PC world are celeron based) Find any comparison review and you'll see this is far superior to any celeron by a huge margin.

I can't agree with any of the celeron comparisons and this is a very good deal in my opinion, although I can understand that it's not a 'top spec' machine

Not at all - the Pentium-m/Core architecture has never been dependent on cache which is why Celeron-m's were within 5% clock for clock of their Pentium-m siblings with double the cache. Not sure how you come to the conclusion it's a bad idea given that the Core architecture is neither dependent onn cache nor FSB which means it's a decent processor for many people.

The Celeron to avoid was the Pentium4/Northwood based Celerons, this processor design was heavily dependent on cache which meant stripping out half of that just killed performance.

Celeron has a very negative connotation that these days is not that appropriate.

Why would you vote this cold and expire it?

What the title says is correct. This is a dual core processor laptop as in 2 processor cores.

Off-topic but your preceptions of Celeron processor are very out dated! Most are based on the Core2 architecture but just have 1 processor core.

Banned

Not sure if I will be buying this but have always been a huge fan of Asus laptos hence made hot Plus I think this comes with a free carry case and mouse as well ?
