Yes, I've noticed that the reviews all tend to NOT balance the hardware well at all!
Oftentimes the P3 systems are $1000 more expensive than the A4 systems being tested....or more!
So, the P3 systems likely have better MB's, components, etc. It stands to reason they would win in those instances.
Why aren't similarly priced systems being compared? At least then the level of the components should be similar if not the same.
Of course, unfortunately for us, there are no DDR notebooks as far as I know. If there was one it would be interesting to compare THAT to a P3 system!
When all else fails, throw your computer out the window!!!
