Ok so I'm customizing my Thinkpad x201 and I can't decide on a cpu. Money isn't TOO big of a factor since most of them are reasonably cheap. I looked at the comparison chart on Intel: http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=43560,49653,52952,52955, So I guess it all comes down to Turbo Boost Technology, VT-d, and the new AES instruction set. How much of a difference in performance is there with or without those technologies? I think I can rule out VT-d since I don't plan on running any virtual machines, but I'm not so sure about the others. Oh I forgot to mention I intend on doing some basic programming, reading and minecraft on the laptop. What are your thoughts?
