Compaq vs. Pavilion

by Kamehameha1081 / January 16, 2006 3:38 AM PST

I am looking at getting a new laptop from HP Shopping. First question, should I go with Pavilion or Compaq. I don't really care if the laptop looks that nice or is heavier than most. I am mainly looking for functionality. Second, should I get an Intel processor, AMD: Turion, Sempron, or an Athlon. My main use of the laptop is for school, which consist mostly use of microsoft office. However, I would like to be able to use the laptop in the future, without it being obsolete. I just recently bought a desktop, with plenty of storage room and a CD/DVD burner. So my laptop doesn't need a burner, large amount of storage, or even a high performance video card.
Any Help?

It was 750 at a famous retailer. With all it has, why not?
