My son is out buying a computer right now. What processor is good? I see intel pentium etc. Thanks for your input.

I'm sure you've guessed by now that I"m completely computer illiterate.

Well most computers in the shops now come with Dual Core processors from Intel or AMD. Most of them also come with Vista :huh: . Put XP on it and it will fly! :thumbsup:

If this is for the laptop you were asking about the other day, I'd say Intel

yeah, I'd try for a intel core 2 duo, if your wallet permits it. I've found that they just seem to work just the same as they age.... for some reason.

It depends what you're looking for the computer do. If its totally just email and small related stuff like that, you might as well get an Asus eeepc(350$, small, linux)
