While we would definitely prefer a Core 2 Duo notebook over a Turion X2 notebook at this point in time, one of the bigger factors is going to be price and features. The truth is that even though the HP 6515b is clearly slower than the HP dv6500t in our benchmarks, in typical use it would be very difficult for most people to tell the difference. A moderately fast dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM packs more than enough performance for most home and business users. Far more important than the raw performance numbers will be the design and features of the notebook. Laptop bargains come and go, so if you happen to find a good sale on any Core 2 Duo or Turion X2 notebook, outside of gaming performance such a notebook will be more than sufficient.

It'll be interesting to see what Griffin will do. If they do it right, they can probably get it to 2.7GHz at 35W. The TL66 is at 2.3GHz. That still won't overtake Penryn mobile, but it will provide low-end and mid-range boxes at good prices.

AMD should be pushing low clocked Kumas for mobile sometime next year, but then Turion can game wit the right GPU.
