Perhaps the most surprising result was the lack of any advantage in battery life for the Sempron with PowerNow against the Celeron M which lacks Speedstepping. It could be partly lower overall cpu power consumption and partly lower power consumption from the chipset. Which is why I'd like to see an Acer tested and see how much worse the SiS chipset is than the Intel. Acer's bottom end models use SiS chipset for both Cel M and Sempron. But they all seem to include wireless, unlike the Dell and Gateway tested.
Overall it's a very thorough test. And note the comment that the manufacturers make very little on these models and were reluctant to promote them by supplying test units. Anandtech had to buy them.

Hey, Danceman, you should use that link and start a new thread here in the mobile forum, as it might be just the kind of thing people are looking for at this time of year. I'd do it myself, but don't want to steal the credit.
Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.

I thought about it. Consider it done.

I was pretty impressed by the Gateway model. Didn't know they were still in the running, but I agree with Anandtech, the gateway did very well. Dell, on the other hand, flubbed it pretty bad with that cheap NiMH battery! Otherwise, they might have a good notebook on their hands, too.
We all Think Different too.
