    UK Government must act on e-crime

    gullible peaple are always the victims whether on the net or not. That's life. I do agree they should do more but common sense goes along way. It's not as if someone can rob your wallet at knife point whilst surfin the net. 99% percent of cyber crime depends on user error.

    Processor Speed

    i'll second that. Laptop CPU's (processors) are optimised for mobile use, they have a lower clock speed to save on power consumption and usually a larger L1/L2 cache to compensate for the lower clock speed. The above CPU is roughly equilivant to a 3Ghz desktop CPU.
