I am trying to get myself a custom built laptop and while I was making a choice of what goes into the laptop, the processor section had some interesting choices:
Intel® Celeron® Dual Core Processor B840 (1.90 GHz) 2MB Cache Intel® Core™i3 Dual Core Mobile Processor i3-2350M (2.30GHz) 3MB Intel® Core™i5 Dual Core Mobile Processor i5-2450M (2.50GHz) 3MB Intel® Core™i5 Dual Core Mobile Processor i5-2520M (2.50GHz) 3MB Intel® Core™i7 Dual Core Mobile Processor i7-2640M (2.80GHz) 4MB Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Mobile Processor i7-2670QM (2.20GHz) 6MB Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Mobile Processor i7-2760QM (2.40GHz) 6MB Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Mobile Processor i7-2860QM (2.50GHz) 8MB
I assumed that mobile processors are less capable than the regular ones, (since they are small and go into mobiles and what not) but something tells me this assumption is very stupid, even though wikipedia says otherwise
I really want to get a quad core, i7 (fastest, let's say) but I don't want a mobile processor, I want a regular one. Some googling got me the differences between quad core and regular processors, but I am unable to find the difference between regular and mobile processors.
So why would anyone offer me to get a mobile processor for my laptop?
