    Quick question everyone.... only because I do not know much about mobile processor technology.

    When doing a little price shopping, it looks like I can land an Athlon-M processor (2600+) for just about a $150 less than a Pentium-M (2.4ghz)

    Im much more familiar with the world of desktops, where I normally tend to go with the Intels, but in this case I would most definately jump on the Athlon for the dollar savings.

    Anyone have any expierence with the AMD mobiles? Pro's? Cons?

    I once had a Compaq laptop with a XP-M 2000 which ran very well. My brother owns it now.

    I've also heard in the past month or so that many people are using the AMD XP-M 2500 CPU in their desktops to overclock. Apparently, they don't have locked multipliers and they use less power.

    Thanks for the reply JS.

    The laptop is for my Uncle... word processing, internet browsing etc. etc. I noted the significant price difference between the AMDs and the Intel Pentium M, I even found a few AMD models with prices lower than Celeron based Laptop. Same manufactured laptop, with almost identical features. I believe in the in the 'if its too good to be true, then it can't be true' theory.

    Why is a AMD-m with speeds similiar to the Intel Pentium-Ms, selling for less than a Celeron???
