Which one is better for laptops for a user of photoshop, flash .net and 3d max
I think for your use AMD Athlon 64 processor based laptop will be the best !!!
well for lappy nothin beats intel centrino,go for it u'll get gr8 performance wid awesome batt backup.
presently centrino rules.......amd lacks in wireless connectivity feature hence they r no match against intel in lappy business
Replies to this question may vary from person to person, it also depends on what u are planning to use these laptops for.
If u care too much for battery life u are better off with a intel centrino,
Otherwise, i will strongly reccomend amd turion based laptops.
Intel centrino is the way to go for lappies .. dont even think of amd turion.
Intel is good i hope.
i do think that i get good backup on my centrino, abt 4hrs. but not when running PS or other stuff.
i guess this topic may b in mobile section inorder to get mor answer...also related topics to this r present r there
amd generates less heat than intel.....so heat wise i recommend amd. in a country where summer temp hovers around 45 degree, heat is a major factor....so think bout amd...it consumes less electricity as well
Turion 64 is very good in terms of performance and price, when it comes to BAT backup, the centrino had more backup than turion in idle mode, when its in full load ,turion gives 10% more batt backup.
Performance is more or less similar because for turions ,AMD gave more preference to clock speed to cope up with Intel PentiumM .The price compariosn will clearly indicate that its directly compared with clock speeds when it comes to comparison of Turion - Centrino , for ex 1.6 model,1.7 1.8 2.0 and 2.2 .2.2 with comparison to 2.26 P-M.Both the Chips , when compared has nearly the same WATT ratings , 28W and 24 WATT etc . The reason why the Turions are not being able to cope up with Centrino in BAT backup in Idle state is because it still uses DDR400 compared to DDR2's in P-M's which uses low power .This problem should be resolved in Jan when AMD will introduce DDR2 based solutions.Also Turions have S 754 with single channel controller.
The difference between the two procesoors in WATT rating is due to the fact that AMD's has the Nothbridge on board,whereas the Intel P4's has it on the mobo.
