    Just thought I'd ask this because of system requirements for older games and I am getting mixed answers from people.

    Core 2 duo P9700 @ 2.8ghz and the Core i3 350m

    why
    are you looking for equivalent to get it? or equivalent so you can get better? i'm not sure either, but i'm confused at why you want to know this

    The desktop CPU equivalent to those two mobile CPUs in terms of performance.

    They aren't.... the E series core 2 duo are desktop ones.

    and the core i3 cpu has an M meaning mobile for laptops.

    No one really bothered to bench mobile cpus against laptop cpus.

    The closest you are going to get is something like looking here.

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i3-350M+@+2.27GHz&id=743

    Which puts the i3-350m at 1900 average. Which puts even an old an old ahtlon ii x2 as being on par with it. The p9700 scores around the same.

    For various reasons, those results are not entirely reliable, but are the best you are going to get with such a strange comparasion.

    What I mean is for example this laptop has the core 2 duo p9700 but my question is what is the performance of it compared to the old core 2 duo E6700 which is not a laptop cpu like the p9700 is are they equal or one worse than the other in terms of gaming?

    edit: Okay apparently it's on par with the E7500 desktop cpu

    I'd say an Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 or E8400 would perform close to the 350M. In the modern cpu generation, a 6th gen Celeron would certainly equal the i3-350M
