I am buying a new computer for the upcoming 2005 Fall semester. I need to know which is a better processor. The Mobile AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3000, or the Premium 4 processor that is found in most dells.

1. ADM Processor

2. Premium 4

Considering its a Mobile Processor... maybe the AMD but it really depends what you're doing with it - a normal AMD won't be as good as a Pentium for most Multitasking things; and a Mobile I think is a little worse than the AMD.

But if you're playing games on the Laptop. The Mobile will be more efficient.
