Hi guys, i am thinking of getting a laptop and this is the processor in it -

AMD Turion 1.8 Ghz.

I will only want the laptop for browsing the internet, some word processing, and the odd game on football manager.

It also comes with 1024 of RAM.

Are the AMD Turions good? ? ?

I would anticipate that it is quite suitable for the needs you have in mind.

You haven't named the brand or model and its price, but this model has just been noted in an e-mail newsletter:

Its a HP DV5244EU


From that then it doesn't look like AMD Turion is very good, what is a better processor to look for if you dont mind me asking.

Im useless when it comes to laptops and stuff.

Thanks mate.

Not necessarily so - only in a comparison with its main rival.

For your requirements, as stated earlier, I would anticipate that it would do all and more that you require.

Thank you Stuart i appreciate the reply.

It does seem a decent laptop for the price and i just wasnt sure on AMD Turion.
