Before i start out with the question, this question is about a MOBILE XP 2500+ cpu with the barton core.
Firstly i would like to know if there is a difference in the barton core in a MOBILE cpu or the standard one for a pc. Also is there a way to identitfy the core speed, FSB, chache, and other things with the cpu's mfg part number. I am looking at buying a 2500+ mobile cpu for my laptop and i need to buy a 2500 WITH a FSB of 333Mhz. Which shouldnt be that hard but once u start searching for something online i find all those cpu's WITH the barton core at FSB266Mhz, is the barton FSB capable of running both the speeds of 266Mhz and 333Mhz? Also i have noticed that some will sell the same model cpu with both the core speeds of 1.83Ghz and 1.867 Ghz. Could someone please let me know about this??

Just get the one rated at 2500+, it runs on 333MHz FSB and is the best one to overclock out there, and if you are getting it for your laptop, get the Athlon XP-M. The difference between a mobile processor and the regular one is that the mobile version runs on less power, produces less heat and has unlocked multipliers(if you know what I am talking about).

Actually the best bet is an XP-M. Those are fine in desktop systems, and are MUCH better overclockers then their desktop counterparts.
