    Core 2 is king right now.

    Yep. I can't wait until more games start taking advantage of quad cores, too.

    I'd recommend amd, cheaper and does the job perfectly well.

    For those that are merely toe-deep in the ocean of pc specs and jargon, is core 2 aprt of intel or amd or something else??

    I'm looking to get a new laptop and it is supposed to be high spec, it has 256MB dedicated graphics but which processor works and functions best for gaming?

    Ok thanks BUT, which one ultimately is a better processor for gaming...long term, despite AMD being cheaper?

    whoops...forgot about the poll. So 2 people say Intel and one for AMD thanks. Can anyone give me a brief description or outline why you think one is better than the other?

    Core 2 is intel, amd also has it's duel cores and so fourth, but at the moment, alot of games aren't taking advantage of these features.
    I'd recommend amd2, but if you want the best of the best at this very moment, not long term when they are beefed up and used more, core 2.

    If your wanting a fast gaming machine, id recommend a desktop pc with a beefy 3d card rather than a laptop, you can upgrade alot better in the future.

    Core 2 is an Intel chip. It's just a better architecture all around. Doesn't eat too much power, doesn't generate a mini-sun inside your case, and as far as I know, it's the best performing chip for games that you can get. If you've got the money for it, it's the CPU you want.

    Thanks people, for all your help. I really appreciate it.

    I need a laptop as opposed to a desktop cpu because I'm constantly on the move and I need something portable and powerful. With that said, would you guys say that a 15.4" at 2.7kg laptop is fairly easy to carry around?

    I would say that's more portable than most, yes. It'd probably be much more portable and light than carrying around one of Dell's monstrosities, anyways.

    Equivalent in name but in performance, no. Intel Dual/Quad Cores are the best processors this time around. As said before, they generate less heat and run more efficiently.

    Is a dedicated 256mb ATI graphics card good for gaming, if so, can it handle games such as crysis?

    You need to list more specs than just "ATI".

    ummno, its the other way around amd are the ones that causes less hit and are efficient. Intel processors heat up like a *****. i swear they can become thier own heat source.

    That hasn't been the case for a long time. This isn't Athlon vs Pentium 4.
