Move from Intel to AMD is easy. Go for it! :-)
I would recommend to you to buy AMD Turion Ultra (ZM-84/ZM-86/ZM-88)-based laptop (Tablet PC).
Soon or later you would give a try to Virtualization tools.
works very well on AMD processors, thanks to hardware visrtualization support.
Performance Index in Windows Vista for AMD Turion Ultra processors is comparable to Intel Penryn processors, while RAM transfer speed is higher than for Intel (thanks to HyperTransport technology)
If you need exact comparision numbers - pls feel free to let me know.
I have those numbers, collected from several notebooks in computer shops.
