I'm looking for a new laptop for back-to-school and the new Dell\nInspiron 1520 series looks nice (I've also been looking at some HP's\nat BestBuy but I think the Dell would be better because I can get a\nlonger lasting battery right away). I've read some reviews of the 1521\nand there's been complaints about the AMD processor being slower than\nthe Intel Core 2 Duo which comes in the 1520. I just wanted to know if\nthere was anyone who has tried both versions (with both having same\nOS, RAM, HDD so there is no bias). The 1521 is cheaper than the 1520\nso even if the AMD is slower, do you think the price difference\noutweighs\nthe performance? I don't play a lot of graphics intensive games or do\na lot of video editing. Any help appreciated.
