Hi with the launch of the amd phenom II processors for notebook use I have been looking for a system to use for school and play. I used to use MSI and ASUS since they, in my opinion, make the best system parts out there. Does anybody know why these companies won't make amd notebook systems anymore? The chips have been released for a while now but still there are very few systems out there sporting these chips. I have only seen HP, Acer, and Toshiba. Does anybody know if any of the top makers(again my opinion OCZ, ASUS, MSI) are going to use these chips at all for their notebooks?

Always use Asus based laptops and netbooks my self.

I can not help but to notice the market is flooded with intel i5 and i7 for notebook and Atom for netbooks.

AMD has always came in a bit short for this market.

For some reason AMD,s mobile line have always ran hotter and suffered from dead chip sets due to the heat.

I to would like to see AMD regain ground on the mobile market.
