T series and P series CPUs, which one to go with.

Hi there.

I am just wondering what are benefits of P series CPUs over T series one, for example:


 Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor P8600 (2.40GHz 1066MHz 3MBL2) 25W


 Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor T9400 (2.53GHz 1066MHz 6MBL2)


The above names are from T400 customization page, from my level of experience and knowledge, the second one should be far superior in term of performance, because it has 6 MB of cache and Also 9400 looks higher than 8600. The only benefits of the first item looks to be its level of energy usage.


Am I correct?
