Specs: Windows Vista
Which processor should I get in a Laptop? So many come up while I';m searching but it would be great for someone to list them in order of the best to the worst, so I can see where each laptop scores on the list.

Thanks all

The better question is, what are you going to be using the laptop for? What is excellent for the office may not be so for a CAD application.
There is more to performance than just raw CPU power.

✔ Best Answer
Depending on your exact use and price range I would go with one of the 2nd generation i-series. ALSO depending on your usage pay close attention to the included graphics, if your applications depend on serious graphics and you go with the minimum or 'standard' graphics, then you will be disappointed even if you have the fastest processor available.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Main use is obviously just the basic office-type work.

However, I also do delve into some good sized games with 'Oblivion' and 'Total War' so I think I would want good graphics and I presumed the processor would also make a difference. I do have lots of tabs and things open at once, specially on research projects where I need to make huge levels of references.
My budget would be around the £500 mark, but I had been looking at second hand laptops on ebay for around that price which had a lot more packed in that I could otherwise afford... Such as the Medion Akoya E6212, or Hp HDX-16

What does everyone think? I know the Medion has a Intel Pentium T4200 Dual Core

Medion aka Currys/PC World Not highly recommended

HP OEM manufacturers always err on side of caution and are built to alleviate warranty costs..

Alienware are expensive £1000.00+++++ but built for gaming

This is a good site to compare Graphics Chips and lots of other information if browse this site, but £500 is tight:
