I am thinking of buying a new Laptop and want to know everyones opinion on the most efficient proccessor ??
I do some DTP and photo work and I don't play games (crap co-ordination )
I know that battery life is also important and certain proccessors give longer working times without mains power ..

fire away techies !!!!!:eek:

not too sure about lappies, but from what I've heard, if you can afford it, go for an Intel Centrino technology based system. Gives the best performance.

what about screens then !! I live in sunny Costa del sol ,Spain and can,t see my screen when i'm outside on the terrace .....what laptop has the best screens or will i have to move to a darker area !!!!??/!!

One of the best screens I've seen is currently on alot of the Dell XPSs. It's treated with some sort of anti-reflectant. In addition, the screen itself is very bright.

Damn...very true.

Then again, you could always keep it on a medium setting, and only turning it up when ya need it. (This is what I currently do)

I'm a laptop man myself, owning....4 :cheesy:

Uh...I think amd makes some mobile processors with low power consumption, Sempron and Turion models. The Mobile Sempron 3600+ is the best I think but also the most expensive. If you want dual core power Turion has some. Intel's good too!
