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

    From what I have read the AMD is a lot hotter then the Duo so in a notebook
    I would go the duo.
