hey .. can someone help me out? which is better for gaming.. turion technology or centrino?
I would say Turion since it is just a moble AMD64 and a Centrino is effectively a moble P4. AMD does usually our perform on the gaming front. The only I would be a little bit worried about is that the last I heard there was some heat issues witht the Turion. Course I haven't been playing all that much attention so they could have this fixed and there isn't any issues anymore.
Well first of all, Centrino is not a CPU. It's a pack consisting of a Pentium-M CPU, a chipset (from Intel of course) & the WiFi module.
As far as the Pentium-M goes, it's almost as effective as the Turion when it comes to gaming & it uses a little less power. The real difference will be in the VGA card more then anything.
thanks guys. that helps.. so then could u tell me if this cpu with these specs. would be any good for gaming with games like call of duty, army and counterstrike?

An Intel Video Chipset? ugh
128Mb VRAM? puke:
Gotta get a GoForce or a Mobility Radeon if you want gaming, but be prepared to sacrifice battery life like mad.
Um, Jumbo249, for your information
Celerino = Running in 32-bit X86 Operation System
Turion64 = Running in 64-bit X64 in X86 OS.
I will just go for mobile that have long battery life, not game because i want use it for education use only.
