I am looking for CPU and GPU comparison information.

What would a P-4 M 2.4 Ghz equate to in Intel Duo Ghz terms?

--- and ---

Which is better an 'NVidia Geforce 440' Go or a 'Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950'?

Online articles to backup this advice would be wonderful!

Cheers

Hi DangerM0use,

I do not know about the processor but as far as video cards, it would really depend on what you want or budget or both, the downside is that the nVidia card you listed is almost on par with the Intel Integrated chipset, so it really just comes down to price or want.

If you want more information on the cards take a look at this site:

Hope this helps

The P4 M is an older processor and Single Core.  Core Duo has 2 cores.  The Core Duo even at slower speeds will still outperform the older P4M processor because it has 2 cores instead of one.  The Core Duo will also give you longer battery life because it doesn't require nearly as much power as the P4M.  It will also run a lot cooler.  
So:
If you are going to be using the laptop for Mobile use and you have the money, then go with the Core Duo.
If you are using the laptop as a desktop replacement and don't care about battery life, or if the Duo is out of budget, then go with the P4M

As for the Video Card, Like Danger M0use said, you wouldn't get much of a boost with the Video Card, but where you would see the difference is in your available memory.  I would go with any video card over Onboard.  When you use an Onboard card it takes away from your system Memory.  

My vote is for The Core Duo and the Graphics Card, not Onboard.

Hope this helps
