But is that the only reason?

Pentium -M 1.6/533/2MB
1GB Dual channel Mem

17" wide screen
Geforce 6800 Go 256MB (Biggest plus in my book)

AMD's 64 bit solutions are far superior to what Intel has and is planning. With windows64 soon to be available, Ive had to reconsider buying a Dell laptop since that laptop with a 32 bit centrino platform is about to become obselete.
I nearly purchased a Dell laptop with the wonderful centrino platform but with 64 bit Windows looming ever closer, this is not a wise purchase at all!! Nor is it wise for Dell as they do offer great centrino lappies, but intel's 64 bit solutions are lappy crappy compared to what AMD has to offer with its on die memory controller it has shown its worthiness of consideration.
Acer has already announced their latest Ferrari laptop that will feature the AMD 64 bit Turion processor ( amd's solution to centrino).
