Hi all

I am considering buying a laptop for regular use such as internet use,
occasionally AutoCAD 2006, MS Office, Roxio video editing, picture touch-ups
but confused with the choices. Which is the way to go: AMD Turion or Athlon?
Mobility is not a crucial factor for most of the work will be done in front
of TV. Thanks a lot.

I bought an Acer Ferrari, with the Turion ML-37. Have been VERY happy
with it. It's not the lightest of devices, but it is nice to be able to
use it for 3 hours without mains juice!
