tourney, clearly you didn't read any of my posts. actually i take that back. you didn't understand
any of my posts.
read the first one after your "aikeo's post above is stupid" comment, again, and try to make more sense of it. read it umm... three or four times. let it settle in. read the gamepc site some more. read the italics portion of my post again. think real hard.

you guys are hilarious... you are calling me stupid and then agreeing with me about the worthiness of the "far superior" 3000+ system in 4 years, vs a dothan. if he wants to make full use of 64bit-ness in 4 years, he will have to buy a new system then regardless of what kind of proc he buys now. would you like to play farcry right now on a p3 with a integrated graphics?
i know you're going to flame on some more, it's unbelievable how silly tourney is sounding. to say that i post just to raise some stupid count, how ridiculous are you. i couldn't care less about some retarded post count, unlike people like you who obsess over how many you have. just look at how many times you two have posted in this thread, about nothing to do with objective information at all. all i care about is the information, and letting people know about points of view.
tourney cannot grasp a very simple point. let me quote another who read my remarks and FIGURED IT OUT, it's really pretty easy:
[quote=jaeva]Well, I saw the new possibility on mwave too, and was very tempted... but I ordered the CL56 (with 1.7 Dothan) anyways. For me, I am willing to give up a little performance (and thanks for the article link, Aikeo - that's really interesting - I'm not giving up much, if any) for smaller size, longer battery life, and integrated wireless. I travel a lot, and I already found the size and weight of my Latitude D400 work laptop annoying - but I can't handle the nonexistant gaming performance of ultraportables. The increase in size & weight to the CL56 is about as far as I'm going to go. Everything is a tradeoff - if we just wanted the most powerful computer possible, we wouldn't be using laptops - they still (and maybe always will) lag behind desktops. You just have to decide which tradeoffs you want to make.
abf, just read the info, make a decision onto what you think is the best for you. don't pay attention to other forum members' callous attempts to discredit / flame others, my only intent with posting is to give you a point of view based on benchmarks / real world evidence i've seen. i don't think anything i've said here is an opinion or falsified on my account, i would never do that.
bacon guy, on the other hand, is really a jerk. hioctane, i'm really surprised at you man. =/
sorry it took me so long, i'm at work and had a meeting to go to
