    Estimated ship date is July 7, with 5-7 day shipping. You might be actually right with that theory, since MIMO requires an additional antenna. Good call. The 12 cell battery is actually pictured in the image gallery of the original post, but I will take pics once I get it.

    I was surprised and disappointed to see HP is only offering the 35 Watt "ML" version of the Turion and is not offering the 25 Watt "MT" version. 35 Watts is the same power as the mobile Athlon 64 and you can probably only expect about 60% of the battery life of a Centrino notebook. I wonder if AMD is having problems supplying the "MT" version because it makes no sense to me why HP wouldn't offer it?

    The Averatec 4100 due out in July is supposed to have the "MT":

    I was also disappointed in the shared graphics on the L2000, but I think the Averatec will have shared graphics as well.

    Where did you find a 6% off HP student discount? I am thinking about ordering an L2000, as well.

    If the Turion and the Mobile Athlon 64 use the same power, then why not go Athlon 64 instead? Don't they have higher clock frequencies?

    I'd love to know the battery life on it.

    The Turion is basically the same as a Mobile Athlon 64 with a few improvements. The main improvement is the L2 cache size goes up from 512kb to 1Meg (as in the desktop Athlon 64). The clock speed of the Turion is the same as the Mobile Athlon 64, but it should run applications faster due to the larger cache. Second, they added the lower power 25 Watt "MT" version, which for some reason HP is not offering. The MT is the same chip as the ML, but is screened to verify it will run to spec at a lower voltage, and thus consume less power. One more small improvement, is that the Turion added some more 3D graphics commands.

    So far as battery life goes, the Centrino is 27 Watts max, but often gives 4 hours of battery life in notebooks, depending on the power of the battery used. The Averatec Turion with the 25 Watt MT is said to give 2.5 hours of life. So I'm guessing the HP L2000 with the ML chip will have even less battery life with the standard 6 cell battery. If battery life is important to you, then get the optional 12 cell battery, but you pay a price, due to it extending about 1/2" out the bottom of the case.

    Anyway, we can't be certain about battery life until we see some actual tests for the L2000 since there are many other factors involved.
