Pentium 4 3.8 GHz pre 2001, Pentium Dual-Core E6500 mid 2006. The E6500 with its 1066Mhz bus speed, 2 real cores and bigger L1 caches will out perform the P4. And the E6500 is more efficient.
Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8
