What's the pin layout/chipset needed for these guys? The old Pentium-m made an excellent HTPC (and still does!) - these guys would be great to drop into a silent ATX motherboard.

It's socket 479, but it's a different layout to the socket 479 that Pentium M chips use. (oh, how genius )

That's actually not quite true. Draw a distinction between "mobile gaming" and "portable gaming" and you'll see a difference. Let me explain:

1) Mobile Gaming - if you're planning on playing Company of Heroes on a transatlantic flight then you're pretty screwed (unless you have in-seat power).

2) Portable Gaming - if you want all the power, but the ability to easily cart your system around to LAN Parties / mate's house / home / work etc then there is a point. As an example, we recently had a mass TrackMania night here in the office. We ran out of PCs but I could happily play on my notebook. OK, so it's not a Quad nor is TM a taxing game, but the principle is there.

Make sense?

I expect most of high end processors for laptop will be purchased by business. I expect my Manager will get one as he always has the best equipment for running Lotus Notes and Word!!!

I have a top end laptop for running Database and Development software, so a high end processor would be better when we have to execute complex SQL queries that take minutes (especially when demoing to clients off site). I think most business laptops are normally connected to the mains and only used on battery for short periods.

Keep on going Intel, crank out those fast processors so the prices for the middle end of the market drop...
