AMD's desktop chips - AMD's desktop chips

PC ENTHUSIASTS are constantly in need of faster processors and more capable graphics cards to power their cutting-edge systems, but processors and graphics cards were "fast enough" for the majority of mainstream business and home users long ago. Demanding games, 3D rendering, and content editing software may be killer apps for enthusiasts, but the majority of mainstream users are still chugging along with basic office productivity applications. In any given day, all the average user may demand is that his system play music while checking email and opening a Word document. For such users, the next "killer app" may turn out to be portability: notebook systems capable of meeting basic performance demands all rolled up in a form factor that fits in a briefcase or even comfortably under an arm. For years, Intel has owned the notebook processor market, but that's starting to change. AMD has come up with a set of Athlon XP processors specifically designed for mobile applications. These processors are every bit as capable as AMD's desktop chips, which are impressive performers on their own, but the mobile chips also pack PowerNow! technology to maximize battery life. Though Dell and other major manufacturers have yet to produce notebook lines based on AMD's mobile Athlons, Compaq has cranked out a very competitively-priced contender in the Evo N1015v. Today, we're examining Compaq's Mobile Athlon XP-based Evo N1015v to find out if AMD's Mobile Athlon XP's chips are really ready for prime time, and whether this low-cost notebook has any serious chinks in its armor. What are the Evo N1015v and Mobile Athlon XP all about? Can they give you the performance you need with the portability you crave? Keep reading to find out.
