Does anyone have benchmarks comparing these two particular chips? I'm debating whether to get the laptop with the XP-M 2800+, depending on how much faster it is compare to the Celeron M 1.3. Thanks.

If you're looking for pure power, go for the 2800+, if you want decent power with very good battery life, go for the Celly.

D.D: I own the 1.3 Celeron M, I'm trying to figure out whether I should buy the XP-M and eBay the old one.
Katsuya: I'm trying to compare just the CPUs, excluding factors such as RAM, HDD, etc., not to mention they can be easily upgraded.
n_w95482: I figured the 2800+ would be faster, but I want to know how much faster. As far as battery life, the Celeron M doesnt have speedstep-like technology, while the XP-M does, so maybe the XP-M would even have better battery life here?
Thanks to all of your replies.

BTW, I did a bench on my 1.3 C-M with Sisoft Sandra 2k5 Lite, and it lost to all XP @ 1800+ or up, but is close to 1.4 Pentium M. Is its performance THAT pathetic?

You also have to take into account that the XP-M is just a desktop processor running at a lower voltage while the Celeron/Pentium M were built from the ground up for mobility. Also, synthetic benchmarks aren't everything ;). Try testing some games on it then see if there's any comparison tests with the 2800+ that have game tests in them.

Edit: It seems that the Celeron M is based off of the Banias core (which I suspected), which is nothing bad at all :).

Even if it is based off the Banias core, I'm sure Intel probably crippled it by giving it half the cache it needs. I'd go with the XP-M.

the 2800 xp M is way faster then the celeron M. the 2800Xp is just a desktop cpu. but gives out lower watts. and is unlock. the 2800XP is a mobile barton.

the Celeron m 1.3 is no where near the 2800xp mobile.

I wouldn't say having 512K of cache is too crippling :p. As for the XP-M, go ahead and get it. It will be faster than the Celeron.
