Do they put an AMD Athlon 64 in any kind of dell or gateway or hp? I have been looking and I dont see one...I see ones with a mobile AMD Athlon 64 but I was wondering if anyone knew off the top of their heads if they make one? I have checked all their websites but dont see one....
As far as I know, Dell's been sticking to Intel's set of processors. To date, I haven't seen a Dell machine with an AMD chip in it. I would get a laptop with a processor that's low on battery usage when unplugged, as that could suck a lot of power away. I had a laptop with a Pentium 4 chip in it (from 2003, sold it because the thing smoked up from the poor design) and the battery life was horrible. Now I have a laptop with a Centrino chip in it.
Perhaps you can request? If you really want AMD, Stick with other brands if your preferred choice doesnt have it.
I need an AMD for game design on the laptop...I heard there really good for gaming too and i know they can heat up quite a bit and battery usage isnt as good...... as for a turion they cant handle as much as an athlon...I need something w/ EXTREME performance wether it be games or multiple aps simultaneously.....so i figured an athlon would be my best choice....Unless anyone has good advice to go something different? Weight isnt really a factor to me and battery life kind of is....
ALSO i need the name brands like dell/gateway or hp because i can get huge discounts on those specific brands...i actually went to best buy today and seen a laptop w/ an amd athlon 64 inside but it only had an ATI radeon and 128mb DDR....maybe something w/ 512DDR would be better but i think 128 is a bit to low..
dell typically doesnt offer AMD like it was siad earlier they stick to intel Brandings.
i will buy the notebook if there is Athlon64 inside
i think AMD is much more better than Intel
do you think so?
Intel for Desktop Software <<>> AMD For Game
My Choose Always AMD
AMD processors are slowly developing, but right now Intel has the upperhand with its new Duo core. My dad, who works in the industry, is convinced this is the direction that notebook processors are headed towards. I haven't yet used one, but all the reviews are extremely favorable & emphasis the idealness for notebook computing (quick without too much heat or overloading).
AMD makes a processor called the Turion, i suggest that if you want a laptop with an AMD processor that you look into this one because it works much the same as the Centrino processors from intel do so they don't produce as much heat as a standard desktop PC processor.
I know that Alienware carries Laptops using the Turion though its gunna be very overpriced compared to most laptops...I know that Compaq also makes some with Semprons and Turions but as for dell and HP im not sure though i think HP should...
Yeah, Dell uses Intel and I doubt they've ever used AMD. HP has some laptops with AMD, and I'm not sure about Gateway. I know that Alienware does have AMD 64 (even the FX 60) in their laptops. Though, I don't think you need a desktop processor on a laptop, unless it's meant to stay on your desk. And, I also agree, if you're getting an AMD, check out the Turion.
My room partner just purchased AMD Turion 64 based laptop. Its an Acer laptop with name Aspire 5000. Its really good but u need enough amount of RAM. It had only 256 MB. Also one should look for what motherboard and chipset is used. If mobo is not good AMD can't do much.
OS should also be 64 bit like Windows XP 64 or 64 bit versions of Linux (Ubuntu, Suse work great).
Fujitsu Siemens do at least two notebooks with AMD 64's in. One has a Sempron 64 and the other has an Athlon 64. Both notebooks are in the Amilo range.
FS Notebooks are extremely good, and have very good and inexpensive warranty options. Highlky recommend them.
Dell will never do AMD, they get far too much support from Intel.
I stand corrected. I was reading in my one issue of "Processor" magazine (www.processor.com) that Dell is considering on offering computers with AMD CPU chips.
