1)The purpose of Athlon's rating system is to ensure that you get numbers that are, for the most part, indicative of performance. A 3200+ Low Power Mobile will perform at levels near a 3200+ DTR. If you want a 3700+, you're out of luck with the mobile, but even a 3200+ is still a damned strong CPU and will work quite well for gaming.
2)This isn't a Centrino (Pentium M) notebook, this is a Turion (Athlon 64-M) notebook.
3)Pentium Ms are good contenders when it comes to gaming, and frequently have performance results fairly similar to those of Athlon 64s and Pentium 4s.
4)The graphics card is more important than the CPU, and it's an X700, similar in performance to a desktop 9700 Pro and better in some cases.
All in all, once the laptop is released, it should be quite the mobile powerhouse, with the 4.5 hours battery life, the A64 CPU, and the X700.
