Hey, Had a question. I wanted to know the differences between the QL-62 and the ZM-86. This looks like a good swap? A few of the sites ive checked out on says the TDP are the same. Although I check AMD site and find out that it is as low as 25? Any truth to this? Ive also checked the lower one and the slightly higher on and they both come clocked in at 35 TDP. Any reason why one chip could be different. There both from the Lion Series so everything should be good. Thanks

Yes the ZM save more power on idle.
Because the frequency has 3 steppings 25%,50% and 100%
while QL only has 2 steppings 50% and 100% so in idle mode 25% CPU throttle on the ZM save more power then 50% on QL.
