    Did you even read the link i posted? .... No they are not actually better, in fact the turion's power saving capabilities are comming close to P-M and they they outperform as well, especially if you compair that with price.

    Agreed. The only benchmark that would be useful here is a dothan chip in a laptop...its a no brainer that the chips will perform better in desktops than in the confines of a laptop.

    when overclocking, i'll give you that but if you look at stock speeds the 780 is about the same as an fx-55 and theres no turion that will come close to that
    Hey who turned sigs on?

    I don't understand how running it in a laptop differ's from running it in a desktop if the parts if the speed of the parts are still the same?

    besides heat of course, but the M's run soo cool anyways.

    exactly there is no difference in running in a desktop other than the ability to overclock

    Compairing a $700 780 to what? the $290 ML-40? And no, it does not perform that well in a laptop setting. Those THG reviews were with some low latency RAM which the P-M loves. Take that away and you get a CPU like the ML-37 which is nearly equal with the P-M 760 in every aspect(so yes it will also kill that huge advantage in the 780). The only shortfall is the full load battery life in which the P-M has a 36% advantage, but in reality the ML-37 actually has a 10% battery life advantage in low power computing tasks. If you are lucky enough to find a notebook with an MT-xx Turion then you've got a 25W processor which will likely outperform the P-M in overall battery life as well.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from the P-M, it's the best overall CPU on the mobile market if you are buying the absolute best in a notebook that you'll actually want to take some place. But if you take a step down from the 780 the real advantages fall apart.
