I'm shooping for a laptop. It's usually going to be plugged in, so
i'm nto worried about battery life. However I would like it to last for
several years (4, or 5). I had settled on a Dell Inspiron 6000 using
centrino technology, but now i'm not so sure.
Is centrino worth it for me? I don't care if the laptop batteries don't
last very long, but I would like the laptop itself to have a 5 year
lifespan. Will centrino increase the lifespan?
Should I get one of the other AMD/Intel processors (does it matter
which?) instead of a centrino -- will the laptop be faster, cheaper and
have as long a life with the other Intel/AMD processors? Is the only
real advantage of a centrino, longer battery life?
The laptop is usually going to be on a desk and not in my lap BTW.
