Since Turion is 754 pin, I don't think it will support dual channel.

b) TM 4101 LMi with 15" PM 730 1.6 GHz, 512 RAM, 60 GB HD, ATI X600, 915 GM/PM 533 MHz 2 MB cache (Sonoma) which I found at 1211.80 euros from yagma.com (+17.00 euros to get it sent to me)
Is the difference (almost 200 euros) worth what I get? the Sonoma processor and the new but small graphic card?
I was also considering some fujitsu-siemens, that came with ATI 9700 128 RAM, but I have read to many bad things about them. ¨Please, dont tell me to buy the acer 8004 and so, cause this is double the price i'm talking about. But if u know any other notebooks with comparable price and gadgets, i'd love to know.
I would appreciate some help here guys!

|In addition, Acer will announce two series in the Thin & Light form factor, which are based on AMD Turion processors: the Aspire 5000 Series for beginners, and the Aspire 5020 Series for more advanced users. The latter unit features an Acer CrystalBrite WXGA display, ATI Mobility Radeon X700 PCI Express graphics, DVD dual double layer disk drive and 6-in-1 card reader.|
