Not exactly. While both are in fact 45nm derivatives, the celeron t3000 does not have speedstep. While I dont think that'll make a mountain of difference in battery life on a portable, for those who make minute demands on the processor and dont have the screen brightness turned way up, it'll make some battery life difference.
I like the pentium dual core vs core 2 duo performance differences for most users, but the dual core celeron does have a few fingers tied behind its back on portable battery life vs the pentium dual core and the core 2 duo in the same architectural range.
True, it is missing some features, that is why I said "virtually" the same. But good facts to point out.
i bought the acer from best buy, should i be feeling buyers remorse about now? i'm not very good with laptop technicalities.
You bought the $249 Acer? No, you should not feel any remorse. You have a great deal. You'll be able to resell it in 6 months for $249 if you so choose and get another one.
