Centrino I vs Centrino II

    Hi,

    Do you think there is a big performance difference between:
    1. Centrino I (Dothan FSB 400)
    2. Centrino II (Sonoma FSB 533)
    (for equivalent CPU frequency) ??

    I actually have the choice between M735 1,7Ghz FSB 400 and M740 1,73
    Ghz FSB 533. The old one has a non glossy display and has my
    preference for this reason but I don't want to have a too big
    performance penalty.

    Thank's for your answers.

  2. The #1 bottleneck in a laptop is always the hard drive. The FSB will not
    make a distinguishable difference, but a good display will, so I suggest
    you go for the 1st one. Oh, and Sonoma is more power hungry so you will
    save battery life in the process.
