My System Specs

Default L2 Cache effects on Real World

SU4100 vs SU7300

These are mobile chips and I thought it would be better to put here over the mobile computing section. I'm planning to pick up the Alienware m11x and I believe that the $100 upgrade from the SU4100 -> SU7300 is a ripoff.
From what I can tell, they are essentially the same chip except the 7300 has virtualization for windows 7 and 1mb extra L2 cache. I don't need the virtualization so that doesn't make a difference to me. However, how big of a difference, if any will the extra L2 cache have on gaming and every tasks + photoshop?

Thanks in advance for any insight.
