Damn, if I could just find a damned VIA C7-M notebook, I'd say VIA C7-M is the best, but I'm gonna say Pentium M is the best instead. 21W TDP models for best battery life/performance combination imo.

Apparently, Twinhead were bringing out a VIA C7-M laptop, but I ain't seen it yet.

The Pentium M is extremely good for the price and performace it gives out. I haven't seen anything for the C7-M, so I can't really say anything about that.

Well I remember reading an article on the desktop version, the C7, which is very similar to its mobile counterpart, and it claimed that playing a DVD only caused the CPU to consume 1W. This is because of the MPEG-II accelerator, but that's a good thing! Pentium M would probably be more like 7W.
