WHAT IS THE BEST PROCESSOR I SHOULD GET FOR A LAPTOP....
I want the best processor for a laptop that i can get for under 800 bux. I game rarely but do. watch video. browse the web and want to be able to run a few apps. without any noticeable decrease in speed. Basically i need to know specifically which athlon 64x2, intel core 2 duo, core duo, duel core to get. Also i dont know if it matters or not but is there another area that i need to know about other than processors that will make my decision into which laptop to buy(only in regards to speed and power please!)

I would say it's a matter of preference, for under $800, your limited. I did manage to come up with one you might be interested in for what your looking for in a laptop under $800.

I don't know how old your laptop is but most of the time dust build up in the heat sink and you have to clean it. The best way to do it is open the laptop and clean it. Don't try to do it from outside you will make it worse.
RAM is not likely your problem. What games are you trying to play? It could be that your graphics card is underpowered for the games you are playing. You are not using your motherboard's built in graphics I hope. It could also be that your entire system us underpowered. You should check the minimum and recommended system specs for each game to make sure your machine is up to par. Even if it meets the minimum specs, you'd do well to make sure your system is more powerful than that as you will not likely have the best experience and will not be able to run the games at higher resolutions.
I don't think a difference of 133MHz of memory speed will make a difference in your gaming performance either way. Also, you won't be able to use more than 3.5GB of memory if you don't have a 64-bit operating system. Finally, it'll be a rare person who actually notices a difference in using 8GB vs 4GB of RAM. So, in conclusion, just buy 4GB of 800MHz RAM and spend your money and your time on a good graphics card, if gaming performance is your main concern.

did you mean to say that your games freeze up every now and then? I have a fourth generation manufactured 360 the ones produced after the red ring of death epidemic and I still rarely experience my console freezing up and have to reset the console. These machines use micro processors just like computers and are sort of bombarded with various pixels and other binary information which can overwhelm the processor at times as such as what could occur with your home pc or laptop this occurs primarily from the software (games) pushing the console to the limit. If you'll notice that this may occur only on certain games and some game programming may also have glitches upon release. You can connect to x box live and check for any updates which may be available to correct any glitches. Hope this helps
Ofcourse 2.4 ghz is better than 2.1 ghz but its not a very big difference if price difference is more than 100$ than go for first one else second one is good and the most important thing i want to mention is that it all depends upon your needs you havent mention for what purpose you are going to purchase. But both are enough for gaming, daily use and for techie as well.
