Default AMD Duron 1.2ghz or Celeron 1.2ghz?

sponsored links
which should i get a celeron 1.2ghz or an AMD duron 1.2ghz. This is for laptop/notebook computer. What are the pros and cons of each. I would really appreciate a quick answer cuz i want to know before tommorow so i know what to buy and can take advantage of the labor day sale.

Thanks in advance to those who reply

The duron is faster, but the celeron will use less power (longer battery life) and produce less heat. Also some people think intel are more reliable (me too), but a lot of people say they have no problems with AMD

Yep, the Duron runs circles around the Celeron, but as said, at the cost of more heat and lower battery life.

Ah, decisions.........

Only you can tell what counts most for you.
