!. Is this the way it goes with Intel processing power?

I'm trying to get it straight in my head because I need to get my wife a new laptop.

I'm really tired of her PC not being quit fast enough.

 

2. As well as the processor, tell me if I'm wrong, I need to be aware of Ram and video memory and there relation when you have built in graphics.

 

3. To those with experience are there processor families that run a little hot for laptops and therefore will have a noisy fan?

 

Atom

Celeron

Pentium Dual Core

Core 2 Solo

Core 2 Duo

Core 2 Extreme

Core 2 Quad

Core i3

Core i5

Core i7

 

Thanks in advance

Pretty close. Couple of corrections. The extreme is "usually" a quad so it would go after the "quad". One last point, I had a chance to run the new core I3 (sandy bridge) laptops and I would definetely go with one of those. First time I saw games playable on a laptop without a descrete card. Nice units.

So how would you know it is a "Sandy Bridge" Core i3. Are the others phased out right away.

they have a four digit model number after the "core i" part. Previous generation is a three digit model number.

fbrito is correct. The second gen (Sandy Bridge) is a four digit processor, and gen 1 (Clarkdale/Lynnfield) have a three digit number such as 530
