    L2 Cache effects on Real World

    SU4100 vs SU7300 These are mobile chips and I thought it would be better to put here over the mobile computing section. I'm planning to pick up the Alienware m11x and I believe that the $100 upgrade from the SU4100 -> SU7300 is a ripoff. From what I can tell, they are essentially the same chip...
