Hey guys, i'm in the market for a new laptop and i noticed AMD has new mobile chip out - the Turion. What's the difference between the Athlon 64 and the Turion 64? Which one is more powerful and more worth the money when it comes to laptops? _________________ DFI Nforce 4 SLI-DR

depends on what you are going to use the laptop for? Are you looking for thin and light or a desktop replacement? The turion is for the same market as the Pentium-M is for, the thin and light laptops with extended battery life. The A64 is going to be more of a desktop replacement laptop, more power but consumes more battery. _________________ I tweaked and it tweaked back! So I Tweaked some more!
