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.

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.
