New laptop!
« on: November 01, 2004, 06:42:41 PM »
On Friday I bought myself a new laptop:

Intel Centrino - Pentium M 1.5ghz processor (equivolant to a P4 2.8)
512 MB ram
32 MB Radeon 9200 Mobility video
DVD +RW
battery lasts about 4.5 hours
Wide screen
Integrated wireless

Overall, it's very sexy.

My other laptop is AMD, but they run too hot.  I prefer a laptop that stays cool.

Huh?

We were talking about Laptops and CPUs, and you are talking about a video card.

Base cost was cdn$1999.  I paid the cdn$350 for 3 years warrenty, plus 14% sales tax here, equals cdn$2750.

Yeah, the Centrino chip is really nice. System runs extremely smooth and everything!

First of all, Centrino isn't a chip, it's a model.  The chip is a Pentium M.

Secondly, Centrino isn't designed to run fast or smooth, it's designed to run low power and, therefore, be cool and have low battery consumption.
