Intel P4, PM, Celeron , AmD need some advice

I'm new here to the forum so bare with me. I'm thinking of getting a new notebook and have been looking at just about everything out there. I would like to know which chip should I be looking for? From what I have seen the P4 runs hot, Celeron runs slow , the PM or Centrino seems to run pretty cool, and I don't know much about AMD but had one in a desktop that was just fine. I just need the notebook for downloading pics, then to burn onto a cd or dvd. And to work with MS office and getting onto the internet.I've been looking on Ebay at some older models but brand new with the Centrino chip. I think decent battery life would be a plus but thought when on the road I could use the cig lighter for power. Any help here with the different chips,speed etc. would be appreciated.I would also ask which notebook but from what I have read here on the forum you can have problems with any of them. Thanks

Chips anyone?

Hey Woody!

AMD makes good chips for the price, and I think they'll handle what you need done.

Hope this helps you. Wink

I'm in no big hurry so I just might wait.I was kind of torn between the Pm and the Amd64 chip.
