    AMD Athlon(TM) X2 Dual-Core Processor for Notebook PCs QL-60 (1.9GHz) for $0
    AMD Turion(TM) X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor RM-70 (2.0GHz) for $50
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T5800 (2.0GHz), 800 MHz, 2MB FSB for $50

    Should I pay $75 to get a 1680x1050 display? Could it be handled by a

    Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
    or
    ATI Radeon(TM) HD 3200 Graphics

    I'd like to use this for my work computer (computer scientist) and would also like to be able to play HD video. Will this handle it?

    The amd only has a 1mb FSB but the intel has a 2MB. How much difference will this make? Is .1GHz significant?

    Thanks for your answers.

    get the best you can afford, and yes that will be fine for playing HD video. I can play HD video on my dell laptop with intel integrated graphics card and core duo 1.6 processor.
