Compare laptops

Hi all i currently have a hp withi this processor and 6gb ram , pentium 987, 1.5g

I am looking getting cheap new laptop for the kids - which has this processor and 4gb ram , intel 3540 2.16gh

Will there be much difference between the two? what would go faster?

The N3540 has a significantly higher clock speed, and is a quad core. It is also two years newer, and uses less power. No competition.

so can you just answer me this, when i look at task manager on my computer now. cpu is where the processor is at? ie 50% and memory is how much ram its using?

It's a bit slower at single threaded stuff though so it depends on workload.

Check benchmarks. Very little difference from what I can see.
