 Ya know what I don't understand with the Notebooks is the FSB and Ram Speed progression it is so slow. They are now making 800 mhz ram frontline equipment when desktops are running ddr2 1066 or faster or ddr3 13-16-2000 ram.

because you have to have a combination of hardware working, to enchance the battery life. the best part is if you take a mobile cpu and desktop they run even on application and sometimes the mobiles could spank's the desktop...

In another year or so we will start to see OLED displays showing up in high end laptops, which will free up a lot of power for other components to use. It won't be too long before laptops and desktops will be using the same components.
