    Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 (2Ghz/667Mhz FSB/2MB Cache)

    vs

    Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 (2.1Ghz/800Mhz FSB/3MB Cache)


    I know one is clearly better than the other, but would I notice a difference? Is it worth an additional $125 on the price of a computer?

    Obviously. Trying to cut a few costs. I'm already splurging for the Blu Ray drive and 128GB SSD in a Dell XPS M1530.

    You won't notice a difference.

    Somewhere.
    T8100 has more cache and faster FSB.

    Faster FSB = good
    More cache = good

    But it's up to you. Personally, I'd shell out the extra $125.

    T8100 is 45nm, while the T5750 is 65nm
    T8100 will run cooler and have less power draw
    it's worth it, imo

    getting power saving for laptops own. That's why i got the M1330 when it came out b/c of the LCD screen. with the extended battery, It runs great.

    Well, you get a warranty. If you wait for a new model, that model might have a problem as well.

    I can understand the power saving. Good information.

    I don't do that waiting bullshit. I'm buying this before September 2nd because its a good deal. Not because I need it (and I really don't).

    It's like a 10-15% difference, don't waste $125 on it.
