The most critical component in any computer is the CPU (Central Processing Unit), where all of the "computing" actually occurs. It interprets and executes instructions and data contained in software programs, incoming signals from network sources, and the commands of its user. The more generic term 'processor' is often used to refer to a CPU, as well. The power and performance of the CPU are the prime determinants of a computer's overall performance.
Mobile CPUs also be called mobile processors, laptop CPUs or laptop processors. Mobile CPUs are designed to save power on portable computers. Mobile CPUs/Processors use lower voltages than desktop processors and have more “sleep mode” capability. Mobile CPUs/Processors can be throttled down to different power levels and/or sections of the chip can be turned off entirely when not in use.
The two largest CPU / Processor manufacturers are Intel and AMD. Newegg offers the most popular mobile or laptop CPUs with the best prices. Intel Core 2 Duo T7500, Intel Core 2 Duo T9600, Intel Core 2 Duo T7700, Intel Core 2 Duo T9400, Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 are among our constant inventory. AMD Turion 64 MT32, AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-52, AMD Turion 64 MT34, and AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56 round out the array Newegg carries.
