The turion because battery life is much better. I had an amd mobile 3400+ for a while and battery life was terrible (1 hour, 1 1/2 on a good day). 64 bit support is a plus, though.

Well, the amd mobile is more powerful, but battery life is terrible, as I said. Alienware even now uses desktop cpu's on its labtops, like the fx-57 or the x2 4800+, yes, in a labtop. To check it out, go here: http://www.alienware.com/Configurato...SubCode=SKU-AD

The Athlon 64 Mobile is basically a desktop processor with lower voltage and produces less heat. The Turion64 is like the Pentium M (or now called the Pentium Duo/Solo). It's specifically designed for mobile use and produces way less heat and uses way less voltage than a desktop mobile verison.

Well said. They also can be overclocked quite nicely.

But, when you put a 3400+DTR in your desktop, it will fly.
