    It wont fall out, it's clipped in. It got edited out of the review, but the battery only goes accross 3/4 of the back, so it is a little unstable.
    The 12cell is much easier to take off, as you have something to grab hold of. The 6cell was nearly impossible without a tool to gouge it out, I must be missing something (yes I used the battery lock switch).

    Can you try "Centrino Hardware Control" to find out real temperature in Intel Machine.

    You can use AMD Dashboard Demo to findout the temperature in L2000.

    LOL, might want to offer him an hourly rate to run all of those benchmark requests, it'll take a while with 3 laptops. He's got a PayPal address I know ;)

    Oops lol.

    CPU-z I did, the results are linked in the review here , AMD dashboard is already on there so that's easy. The others requests i'll try do too, it might be a while.

    The V2335 @ 800 MHz is 51 degrees.

    I read this too literally , I guess :

    "I'm happy to do any other testing while I still have the laptops." :p

    I cant afford myself this days , so I dont think I could afford a real reviewer of your quality , sorry man.

    Thks for the Cpu-Z screenshot , personnaly I prefer html and text.

    CPU-z ... about tab ... Html report

    Belarc you have to save the html to disk

    others you just save it to html or text

    If you feel like it.

    if we start blaming the o/s for things

    then its fair to say that the TURION is 200mhz faster..

    so it would only be fair to test this turion vs the intel if the intel system was a 2.0ghz intel

    therefore it would be clock for clock test comparison..

    if runnig WinXP pro does score changing then i guess the intel running almost 200mhz slower at full speed would mean loss in that department like in PC MARK etc.. dont u think

    but fairly a 2.0 ghz chip vs a 2.0ghz chip would be good

    if the o/s thing bothers you.. thennnn why not mention the processor speed as well



    edit: and no i am not an intel fan boy or amd fan boy,
    i have both systems at home and each serve their purpose.

    and
    great review by the way

    i just went to the compaq website after reading this review and...

    a pentium m 1.6 v2000 series model with
    60GB 5400 hard drive
    512 of ram
    6 cell batttery
    intel 54g wifi

    would set you back $1045

    an turion 1.6 v2000z sereis model with
    60gb 5400 hard
    512 of ram
    6 cell battery
    broadcom 54g wifi

    would set you back $850

    $200 difference for similarly configured laptops, but as the review stated, the centrino would last longer under battery conditions, but no 64bit support and you have an intel integrated graphics which sucks at anything gaming (*but for non gamers it's a moot point).

    Battery life is sure disappointing on the ML-Turion systems, don't regular Athlon64 notebooks almost get 4 hrs of battery life with a 12 cell?

    Seems like HP is crippling the v2000z performance-wise, the ram is underclocked to 133MHz (DDR266) but it's a 166MHz stick. The CAS latency is higher then what SPD reports too at 133MHz. Since it's single channel, the low memory bandwidth has to hurt, even AthlonXP's could use more bandwidth.
