    Does anyone know what the big draw back is of the AMD mobile chip over the Turion?

    As far as I can tell the Turion is still 64bit with 32bit backwards compatibility, still has 1mb L2, and the Turion will offer a longer battery life than the AMD mobile.

    I'm looking for a replacement for my current laptop with an AMD mobile, and about 1.5hrs battery life can kinda suck sometimes. So these Turions intrigue me.

    I thought the Turion was AMDs competition to the Centrino?
