But one piece of information given to me by a retailer over in HK that made me think was where certain brands manufactured their laptops. For example, Fujitsu and I think Toshiba produce a lot of their models in mainland china however Sony Viaos are made in Japan. I also think this affected the pric...

you're more than likely right....the sales strategy at Best Buy is to drive sales revenue and accessory percentage HARD (which is why whenever you buy, say, a printer for example, they push ink, paper, upgraded USB cables, and online photo services on the customer, even if it's something they reall...

For thermal management and battery life (not talking balls to the wall performance), then Pentium M is the shiz IMHO. Intel does have great power saving technology, something good for those who use lappies on college campuses, for example. It's also good for business/portable office use as well (ot...

Well, in my opinion the best notebook chips are Intel's Pentium M. AMD's Turion is somewhat promising, but doesn't yet have much market penatration. Though, saying that AMD chips heat up too much for laptops is just plain out ignorant. If you take Intel's P4 and AMD's Athlon 64, they are both prett...

*WARNING* This may start a flamewar and get locked, just so you know. AMD procs are generally faster in games (with the new A64) because of the onboard memory controller. Intel rules at MP3 encoding and "productivity" apps, that's my $.02 Also, stay on topic. He asked about mobile processors and he...

AMD vs Intel

I don't know if this has been talked about in a previus post but I was recently at a PC mutli-complex store in Hong Kong where one retailer informed that I shouldn't buy a laptop with AMD since they heat up too much unlike intel chips. What do others on here think about this. For example where bundl...
