I want to be as ahead of the game as possible. I know that computers over $1500 won't have the best of everything.

I need a laptop that I can have great internet speeds, I download pictures and music. I would also like to burn cds and dvds. I need a laptop because i dont have the space for a pc.

Download speed peaked out years ago.

If you had the latest Core 2 Duo and I had my old Acer ter-600 (MHz) I can assure you that downloads with finish with a second of each other. Hope that helps.

Core 2 Duo

If you want to get the latest technology, then, get the Core 2 Duo.

Turion is a single core CPU while the Core 2 is a dual-core, the latest mobile technology.

I have the Core Duo CPU and I really love it. A powerful and very fast CPU.
