When it comes to buying a new laptop one of the main things you should look for is a good processor.
Intel is a bit more expensive than AMD is but is more reliable. Intel also has an auto shutdown feature in their processors when the chip overheats. This is a key feature when it comes to laptops because the main issue with laptops is overheating. Overheating is the main cause to parts going bad in laptops as well.
AMD is a good amount cheaper than Intel. AMD still makes very good processors but most of them lack the auto shutdown feature that Intel provides. This can be an issue when it comes to overheating.
AMD: Only go with AMD if you believe you can maintain a cool pc. If you have any doubt that you can do so then go with Intel.
Intel: If you can afford to make the investment in a cooler more reliable pc with an Intel chip then go for it. It's the better decision. But if you don't choose Intel then i recommend buying a chill mat with the computer to increase the life expectancy.
I read this and don't believe you - yes the AMD dual core gets hot - yes AMD processor are HOT processors - is intel better - no there on par with AMD - the thu put rate is so close it doesn't matter - now vista basic is just that BASIC - if you want to bump it up - home premium 32 or 64 but ultimate 64 should get it going.

Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2
Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4
Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4
Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz
Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz
Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2

Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron
Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64
Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron
Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable.
