Via vs Intel vs AMD??

OK... I am getting a new laptop. It must be super portable. I am a Mac fanatic so was thinking of getting the MacBook Air. But I am now wondering if it's such a good buy. I already have a larger laptop for the heavy stuff so don't need anything too fantastic. I am now looking at the HP 2133 mini note. Or... show more OK...

I am getting a new laptop. It must be super portable. I am a Mac fanatic so was thinking of getting the MacBook Air. But I am now wondering if it's such a good buy. I already have a larger laptop for the heavy stuff so don't need anything too fantastic. I am now looking at the HP 2133 mini note. Or another HP laptop.

I am not a techie person.

My question is:

What is the difference between the Intel (Air), Via (2133) and AMD (HP) processors and should they influence my decision??

Thank-you so much for your answers - greatly appreciated.
