i didnt actually look up the unit you were looking at, so im not sure what that mobo can take, processor wise. the turion is a mobile processor and a decent one at that. if possible tho, i would suggest going with a slower (in clock speed) dual core processor than a single core processor with a faster clock. thus a turion x2.
Well I will be using this one with Linux (every since learning how to use it, I'm never going back) this fact alone is saving me 250 dollars I don't have to pay for windows and 200 for other applications (office...).
I was already on the edge with going with nVidia so honestly thats enough reason for me.
I'm trying to get a balance of speed and mobility with my processor, (I sometimes use my computer for notes), and it would be impractical to have one that is fast a lightning but eats 1% of battery every 2 seconds.
