Default hello what should i buy?

hello i was going to order an HP laptop dv2000t off their website and customized it with 100gb hard drive and 1G ram. my question is i found the same laptop that was cheaper in staples store, but it had 2050 core duo processor instead of the 2400 processor which i added to my customizable HP. is there a very noticeable difference speed wise and all together between these two processors?? the 2050(1.6ghz) and 2400(1.8ghz). and also i would be using the laptop for primarily internet browsing and downloading music but maybe install CAD program on it if it wont be too much for it. would the HP with 100gb hard drive and 1g ram and 2050 processor be good enough and fast? please give me any info you may have

i don't know if it would make a huge difference. i mean its only .2 ghz between them. but the cheaper one (1.6 ghz) will be fine for a CAD program and internet browsing.

WEll I just got the same notebook at Circuitcity this monday.
The 2050 is plenty! You will need to upgrade the video to the 7200Go to run a Cad program on it. 2GB of ram would help it out also if you are running Cad.

I have a Compaq laptop (which is owned by HP) and I love it. Our entire school uses all HP equipment, which I work on daily. It's quality stuff, from what I've seen.
