need advice on the AMD Athlon dual core x2 processor in the Compaq 615

    Thining about buying the compaq 615 from ebuyer it has the AMD Athlon processor for £355, I know the AMD Turion is the better processor but wondered if the Athlon is any good, the laptop is for my sister who is new to the world of computers & technology etc so not looking for anything that can communicate with NASA but a decent processor.

    I have a HP DV5 with a Turion processor. I bought the Compaq 615 last weekend from e-buyer for my parents. The windows experience score rated it as higher than my one. Overall I thought it was a great laptop. The only thing I did was buy another 1GB RAM stick at £17 from tekheads and fitted it. (Its DDR2-6400 @ 800Mhz). The only issue with the laptop is the on-board graphics but for someone that isn't a gamer this laptop should be more than good enough.
