    It seems a small stumbling block has been found. The 2.1 ghz thinkpad I wanted is NLA, I now have a choice between a dual core 2ghz, or a 1.8ghz core2. Is a core2 worth the extra £90?

    Unfortunately they don't list mobile CPUs there. The laptops are identical other than the CPU (same ram, hdd etc), so it's a case of is a core2 1.8Ghz comparable to a dual core 2.0Ghz

    We've got a load of these and the 6720s model too, both are superb.

    I've finally decided on the core2 1.8 thinkpad. Now to see how strong it is by repeatedly throwing it at someone I don't like...
