Should be fine for that, those are not very heavy uses, the internet connection is going to be critical there.

It also has a decent dedicated ATI graphics card which will help a lot with the videos and games.

Pure CPU performance isn't very high, but I'm assuming thats not why you are looking at it and for the posted neeeds is fin, see here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/[email protected]+1.30GHz

Well the benchmark shows the performance of the CPU alone compared to other CPU's - the SU4100 is near the bottom of the list meaning its performance is low compared to other modern mid to high range processors. Its still very acceptable and gives you much better battery life.

Also its not so much as what it can't do, its more of how fast in can do things. The faster the clock speed the faster it will perform everything.

The CPU in the Sony is a much higher performer: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/[email protected]+2.13GHz

For your requirements either one will be perfect. Make the choice on the features you want, the battery life, the size/weight.

Thanks again! One more ignorant question: would a lower grade cpu contribute more towards general age related computer slowdown?

Kind of, but that would be because of software and not the CPU itself, the CPU never slows down. Throwing faster hardware at software slowdown is the wrong approach anyway, keeping the laptop clean of junk is the better approach. Also its definitely not a lower grade part, if anything its a higher grade designed to run at lower voltages and withstand greater heat.

So in conclusion, it's a pretty decent processor? Thanks a million times over, you've been very helpful!
