The only Power Now I know is from the older AMD laptop CPU that uses the PowerNow feature. It's something like Intelís SpeedStep power management feature.

If AMD is what you want to get, Dell doesn't offer any AMD equipped Turions. Only HP/Compaq and some other private label.

WHat's your budget? I know of:
Acer, ABS, cyberpower inc, voodoo, falcon, hp, dell, fujitsu, toshiba, ibuypower, gatway, compaq, and sony. For powernow, you should go to any place except del and sony, from what I know. They don't do amd's.

i would have to say a tosshiba or an hp if you are going for a big brand and scratch the centrino, and get an amd 64 Turion, they are kickass compared, and if you have piles of $$$ to blow, i dont usually suggest it but ALienware does make very high quality computers.
