Default AMD Processors

Hi, I'm looking at a few notebooks on the current market, all the sales going on, I may get a better deal, but I have a question concerning two AMD Processors.

There are two different AMD Processors I was looking at one being the AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-56, and the second being the Mobile AMD Sempron™ 3600+.

I know a bit about computers, but haven't really gotten into processors much yet.

Would you sacrifice the .2GHZ for the extra L2 Cache?

Thanks for your help.

Which one has the .2GHz? If I read it correctly, I think it's 200MHz difference. Either way, get the Turion X2. Dual core will always win hands down.

The Sempron has 2.0GHZ and the Turion x2 has 1.8GHZ

Sempron L2 Cache 256kb

Turion x2 L2 Cache 1024kb

Yes, looking at the specs--I don't care how good the Sempron is number wise. The dual core makes all the difference.
