I've been browsing the market of new laptops and had my list rather whittled down, when i read on Voodoo PC's site that centrino processors run effectively 1.8 times the actual clocked speed (ie the dothan 1.8 is quoted by voodoo to be running at the equivalent of 3.24). This was new information to me, and openned up the centrino based notebooks into my search. For a gaming notebook that isn't going to be plugged in on a desk 24/7 (I travel a bit) what processor would you recomend? I was looking at, among other things Athlon 64's and P4m's. Also, if anyone knows, do benchmarks give this 1.8x coefficient consistently?
