I'm getting ready to invest $6000 - $7000 in a workstation laptop (Clevo) and am waiting for, in this order, 100 GB 7200 RPM hard drives and the AMD dual core processor.
Never having had a computer with AMD, what are legitimate issues, or complaints, about AMD or their processors? I know the independant IT company we use doesn't have too many positive things to say about them.
Is the AMD/ATI combination more popular with gamers than Intel/Nvidia because of cost? I don't need to make a mistake here and need the fastest and most powerful workstation notebook that I can configure (within the next 4 - 6 weeks).
Also, I noticed on the Eurocom site that the AMD dual core D900K will be limited to 2 GB RAM. Admittedly, I'm not that knowledgable here, but am I better off with a P4 670 and 4 GB RAM than the dual core with 2 GB RAM? 2GB is currently sufficient. Working, simultaneaously, with REVIT and PHOTOSHOP files in the 50 - 100MB range, I could/would think that 4 GB would be a huge advantage.
