Notebooks - mobile or std processor?

  Techy Dee 18:14 26 Feb 2003

I've recently fallen from a ladder and broken my leg which has to be elevated for around 8 weeks. I have around £1,200 to spend on a notebook and don't know what to buy. Should I go for AMD or P4 and should it be a mobile processor. Has anyone got a Multivision Ionix or Pro vision and are they any good? I don't want to wait a couple of weeks for delivery. Help??

Sounds like a job for PC World. Pay them a visit and see what they have to offer. You should be able to walk out with something same day.

Only if you are going to be using it away from mains power do you really need to worry about the processor. Moblie ones should allow the battery to last longer.

AMD will be fine for most people, just look at where the fans are.

Its not always a good idea to use a portable computer on your lap for a long time...has nasty side effects!

A mobile version of the P4 has to be better in the long run - cooler running, less power = longer life for the batteries, and longer life for the system.
