The Turion is not a good mobile processor? It's you know just a low power Athlon 64, They just came out with 2.4 ghz versions as well, I fail to see how that is a dumb choice, The GPU's will suck down around 130 watts all on their own, you toss in an FX 60 and it's 110 watt TDP, and your talking about 240 watts just for those parts you add the Screen, HD, mobo, and Ram, and your looking at oh say 300 watts in your lap, compared to say 70~75 watts for something like an Acer 8204.
Mabey they were worried about the laptop simply say ... bursting into flame?
