For many years, Intel's Pentium M processor and the the Centrino platform, has reigned as king. Offering high performance at a fraction of the power consumption of its competitors, the Pentium M was the obvious, no-brainer choice for most mobile users.

However, things are becoming more complicated. With AMD's recent release of its Turion processor, Intel's dominance of the mobile market faces its first real challenge since it introduced the Centrino platform. Based on AMD's powerful Athlon 64 line, the Turion 64 mobile processor claims to offer comparable battery life and even better performance than Intel's Pentium M champion.

nice post FORD, I was going to post this article only to see you beat me to it. PC world I beleive, said the Turion was "no centrino killer."
But this shows, the Turion is an awesome chip. The turion DOMINATED. AMD laptops are not only cheaper to build, but are future proof with their support of 64 bits, but overall a better chip. The more laptops we see released, the better numbers we will see. Also if Nividia were to release a chipset for Turion laptops I am sure we would see even better numbers AMD RULES!
