Help Choosing Processor

I'm looking at two different laptops.  My needs for this laptop is to burn
DVDs (video - minimal editing though) and do development work on.  Ths
systems are slightly different with regards to the CPU only.  So I'd like
some help in deciding if one is much superior than the other.


CPU: Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology
CPU Speed: 3.2 GHz
Bus Speed: 800 MHz
L2 Cache Size: 512 KB


CPU: Mobile Pentium 4
CPU Speed: 3.3 GHz
Bus Speed: 533 MHz
L2 Cache Size: 1 MB

Is one of these systems superior or are they about the same?

Double check the bus speed of the laptop (not the processor!) - 800MHz
just doesn't sound right.  Sounds like this is a desktop processor put
into a laptop (as a lot of them are).  Although the processor is
capable of 800MHz bus speeds, isn't the actual laptop bus speed
