I was wondering, since the AMD Turion has Cool n Quiet, if this means that the battery life is significantly longer (since most of the time I'd imagine mine would be using Word and so on).
Also, I'd imagine that Dual Core versions of these processors (not sure if AMD has a dual core notebook CPU) would use up battery a lot more.
Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about what difference these things make? I'm planning on getting a laptop, and from what I can figiure out, an AMD Turion would be best for battery life, though I expect not for performance.
Am I right? Thanks for any help. Also, anyone know any web sites that have done any tests along these lines?
