Want to buy a new laptop - what whould you advice?
I've researched the market and I am ready to buy a notebook in a few days. Now, I have to choose between 4 models (2 turion64 and 2 centrino).
What do you thing? What would you recommend?
Letís suppose the price is the same, the height is not so important, power consume is important (but not extremely important) and that I have no interest in running games. Running Linux under very good condition is the most important thing.

all centrino means is that it has an M processor and a wireless card. don't pay extra for a centrino name if you can find pentium M with a wireless card elsewhere cheaper. i don't have experience with the turions so can't help you there.Desktop: Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz 1.5 GB RAM Ubuntu/XP Pro
Laptop: Macbook 2 GHz C2Duo 3 GB RAM OS X/ Ubuntu/ XP Pro
