    I am looking at laptops with these processors, and I see that the worst on is with a higher price, while the better one is with a lower price. Can anyone give a valid reason, because I do not want to buy a notebook which will be with problems again. Like my current A2-1800 AMD processors, that is weak and despite being weak is also overheating.

    The processors are I5-2520M and I5-520M, the notebooks are respectively Dell Latitude E6320 and Dell Latitude E4310.

    I'd get neither.

    The current 8th generation Core processors are light-years better than anything else I have used -- low power and fast.

    My Lenovo Yoga 920 weighs about 3 Lbs., runs anything I throw at it, and the battery lasts all day (and night!).

    Granted, you pay for it. But in this case, it was worth it!

    I prefer to wait 10 year until it gets to the normal price its worth.

    Does anyone even sell these anymore?

    Yes. They are a rather good alternative to my HP DM1 pavilion 4300EC with E2-1800 processor.

    Those statements seem inconsistent to me. You can’t expect top quality in a model designed around cost-saving compromises.

    I looked at info at the link u posted.

    Am I understanding correctly that laptop with 520m has lower performance and cost more?

    Yes. At least when I compare the processors from ark.intel.com, it seems like the 2520M is better?

    EDIT: I took this PIC from a computer group of google plus, and I like it :D.

    Yup. Excellent engineering + fashion.

    Notice the release dates. 520M came out a year earlier and it has two sockets. It looks like it might have been the initial leap step from which later models were developed. If I am right, then developing the 520M was more expansive than later models that were based on it, intel than passed the higher development costs to the builders, who in turn passed them on to us, the consumers. Even used, the lease supplier would have wanted more money for these used off lease laptops to recover a greater portion of their initial investment. So whoever is selling these used/refurbished laptops wants more for them.

    That is my best guess.

    The difference between the two intel cpus won't be noticeable, but depending on your needs and your budget I would rather get something a bit newer, also it would be useful if you tell us what kind of software you are going to use

    MPLAB, CCS PIC C, Proteus, Orcad, Chrome, Starcraft Broodwar, Warcraft 3, KiCad, Arduino, MikroC (maybe), Vmware player 12.1. Even my old desktop Sempron 3200+ was working better then these dual core junk things called processors now a days.

    If I could find one, I would buy an old Esprimo notebook, with a real graphical chip inside of the real Nvidia, not the junk they call Nvidia today.

    Budget: 200 dollars

    It would be much better if AMD and Intel would quit the CPU business, allowing you to produce them far better and cheaper. You could even pay your employees more.

    I am sorry they've been holding you down.

    There oughta be a law...
