understanding is that the low voltage mobile AMD 64 chips have hit the
market. When I tried to customize a laptop at hpshopping.com, I only
see the AMD Mobile-M or AMD 64 CPU processor options for the zv5000z
laptop. According to this old eweek link
(http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1636989,00.asp ), HP is using
Mobile AMD 64 (not just Mobile AMD) chips in the zv5000z series.
Can anyone please confirm or deny this or suggest a way to determine
this ? If the zv5000z does not use Mobile AMD 64 CPU, how does the
notebook perform in terms of thermal/heating issues. I mean have you
purchased one, and does it heat up significantly especially with say an
AMD 64 (non-mobile/mobile???) 3700+ processor ?
My existing ze5300 P4 2.66 has just bit the dust due to poor heat
(handling) issues. I would like to get an AMD 64 laptop, but I do not
wish to get burned (no pun intended!) again with the overheating
problems. Feedback appreciated!
Re: zv5000z confusion, is it a w/ Mobile AMD 64 (or just AMD 64) ??
regreting it now 'cuz the fans needed to cool the "cool running <yeah
righ>" A64 desktop make his machine sound like a truck!!!
WHY DO YOU PEOPLE GET A PORTABLE DEVICE then throw as much stuff to it
as you can so it can never possibly sit on your lap or the battery
lasts 1/2 hour so u have go keep pluging in the dang thing....
And some Isaac Newton in this forum asks why there are no A64 laptops
with RAID!!! ARRRRRGGGHHHHHHH.
