Specs: Windows 7 Build 7000, P4 2.8 GHz/ 2GB RAM
Hello, I'm going to get a new laptop pc this month but, before I go to get one, I need to know if Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz processor does exceed the performance of Pentium 4 2.8 GHz that I currently have or not ?

Because all laptop pcs in our market has 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo processors not more.

My current desktop pc is so old so, I need to get a laptop that equals or exceeds the performance of it.
my current desktop specs is:-

Intel D845PESV
Intel P4 2.8 GHz
nVidia 7600GS 512 MB VGA
and other things are normal such HD is 250 GB ad so on.

so please inform me about the best laptop that provide the better performance than my desktop. thanks and sorry for making it long.

The P4 is a highly inefficient single core CPU, the Core 2 Duo is a VERY efficient dual core. There's no comparison. The C2D will mop the floor with your P4.

Graphics performance is another issue though. Unless you're paying in the range of $1000 for your laptop, it's doubtful the graphics will come close to the performance of the 7600GS. So if gaming is what you're after, carefully review the specs before you buy anything. This table should help:

Thanks, but, I know what laptop I want to get and about other performance parts but, the new thing that I didn't deal with before is the Core 2 Duo thing, so , Do you mean that's enough to get a laptop with Intel C2D 2.0 GHz or do I need to look for a higher core speed ?

because the lap I'm talking about is about 1100 $ of price and it contains one othe GeForce 9 chips with 512 MB dedicated VRAM. anyway I'm going to revise it's components before deciding to get it.

OK, the one I'm getting is containing a class 3 VGA core, it's GeForce 9200M GS or similar but, the dedicated memory which I saw is 512 MB , while the chart you gave me says that the max memory for it is 256 MB , should I worry about that ?

I noticed that the score of the 9200M GS is higher than the 9300M GS although the first is slower-clocked version of the second ? so, can you tell me how is that ?

And my last question is , Is class 3 core close to the performance of my old 7600GS (G73 core) ?

And thanks, because, this is my last consideration before buying the laptop I saw in the market.
