anyways i'm currently looking for a laptop since i will be an exchange student in France from August - December...so i was just wondering if it would be worth it to wait for the AMD Turion x2? I heard that it will come out around May..but the thing is..will the price be really high? And would there still be some defects to the processor?
Or should i just buy the AMD TUrion now? (lookin at ML34..the acer mentioned above)
Everything posted, here and on the web, states that Turion X2 will be available in Q206. While there is alway "errata" I wouldn't worry about "defects" as you state. If you can wait, you'll probably see Turion X2 laptops out by June July timeframe, if not earlier. Price and power consumption (read Heat) should be similar, with performance increasing.
