O.K still not 100% sure on whether to choose a laptop with Centrino, Celeron, or AMD thingy in it. I'm not sure if I would need that wireless thing, and I have always been told to go with Centrino, but I keep seeing AMD's that look good. whats the difference between a 1.7GHz Centrino, and a 1.7GHz AMD processor. And why do I see 3.06Ghz AMD's for the same price as 1.8Ghz AMD's. Would this laptop be good enough to play the hightech games and all that, would it be as good as say... the Asus A3 with 1.73Ghz Centrino.
