The cheapest latitude has a Celeron processor. Both of the ones I posted have dual cores with a larger screen. I'll be putting XP Pro on them. The Vostro start at $599 for a big screen.

I need a laptop for a lot of video editing and image editing. That's why I'm looking for a dual core. The Acer has a high definition screen, which is nice.

I highly suggest you save until you reach the $800 - $1000 range. You're looking at budget notebooks right now, which are not suited for video editing.

Try to buy a notebook that will last.
