I looked at AMD's main page in search of 45nm based CPUs for the laptop.

The only information available pertains to:

1.) AMD Athlon II
2.) AMD Phenom II

Both are based on 45nm manufacturing technology.

However, despite some news trickle about the new Congo platform since June, when it comes to mobile CPUs, the newest line-up are:

* AMD Turiontm X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processors and AMD Turiontm X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processors
* AMD Turiontm Neo X2 Mobile Processors
* AMD Athlontm Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks
* AMD Athlontm X2 Dual-Core Processor for Notebook PCs

So my questions is: When will normal customers be able to buy laptops based on the 45nm technology?

Thanks for the link. I found Turion II and Athlon II based laptops. However, what's the battery life like? My commute is 2 hours one way, so a laptop with 4+ hrs battery life when doing word processing would be best.

1.75 to 2 hours tops.

2.25 hours maxed power saver.

Your going to want a netbook bud.

or 3 batteries lol.

Asus makes a mean 10.5 hour run time netbook.

I do have a small mobile Back&Decker mobile power charger pack that converts DC to AC 110. Weight about 1 pound. Fits in the palm of my hand and gives enough power for an added 1 to 1.5 hours via charger .

Smaller the screen with integrated GPU over dedicated the battery life will hit 3 hours tops under max battery saving and 6% screen brightness. But that's a 14.6 inch screen.

According to the Computer magazine c't (German) they tested:

15,6" Acer Aspire 5542G (Athlon II X2 M300, Mobility Radeon HD 4570),
16" Asus N60Dp (Turion II X2 Ultra M640, Mobility Radeon HD 4650)
17,3" Acer Aspire 7540G (Turion II X2 M520, Mobility Radeon HD 4570)
The battery-life was usually around 3-5 hours.
The systems needed between 12,7W (5542G) and 15,5W (N60Dp) in idle mode.

The ASUS' N60Dp battery life is up to 3 hours.
The Acer's 7540G battery life is up to 5 hours.
