Default Desktop vs Mobile CPU

Which do you guys think is more powerful, a desktop AMD Athlon X2 3800+ at 2.4GHz (windsor, socket am2) or a MOBILE Core 2 Duo T8100 at 2.1GHz (penryn).

I'm thinking it's the core 2, but since it's a mobile I'm not certain. There doesn't seem to be any comparisons or lists online of mobile and desktops CPUSs together.

My new laptop comes in a few days and I was just wondering which computer I'd be doing some of my video encoding on.

Mobile by far.

Just because its mobile dosnt mean its slower. Its just lower wattage and cost more compaired to a desktop version of the cpu. My 2.5Ghz T9300 still gets 5.5CPU score in vista.

In early 2006, some people ran the original Intel Core Duo processors, which were mobile chips, on a couple rare socket 479 boards. Clock for clock they were faster then AMD's best.
