Re: [DMCForum] OT New Laptop help!!

Hey Jack

Centrino is best of the listed for power efficiency when relating to battery
life. Battery life depends also of course on accessory use- non-powered USB
devices, 802.11 wireless, DVD drive usage, etc.. will help suck the life out
of a battery at a pretty fast rate.

I would not recommend the Athlon- fast, but unstable and hot. Centrino is
great mobile performance, but it too is not as powerful as a hyperthreading
P4. If battery life is a higher priority for you than absolute top notch
performance, go with the Centrino. In my opinion, anymore they're all fast
as hell- it's only a matter of the perks of each processor and how much RAM
the laptop has.

Typically a DVD-RW drive in a laptop is a 2 stager- it sucks the data off
the DVD being copied, then you replace the DVD with a blank DVD and the
laptop dumps the data to it.

Just my opinion- Good luck!
