    so this means that Pavilion's that come up with AMD are pretty much hotter than intel's? AMD or not, the fans in hp units (as what ive read) tends to be configured to run faster if the bios was updated.. i mean hell, HP shud work stress more on their thermoregulation! a matter of intergrating the parts inside the laptop! My GoD HP delivers teh BEST look and feel when it comes to laptop styles and finishes but regarding NOISE and thermoregulation, INTEL/AMD or not, they really do SUCK!!!:mad:

    For those who have Hp Pavilion notebooks with AMD's are the ones who are having the heat problems. Intel processors run much cooler therefor they don't fry out the laptop's motherboard or nearby components. But to be sure techincal support said that every laptop in their line will have the fan running all the time to prevent further complications.

    HP Pavilion DV9612ca here with TL-58 AMD X2 processor. Happy with the laptop 100% Idle at 48-50deg. When my son play games, the temps might reach the high 60. This is not bad at all.

    Like all the laptops, be sure you clean the fan that use to run to cool the cpu, i will come dusty faster than you imagine.

    So keep it clean an you wont have problems.

    AMD all the way.

    NCstate11....Replacement: Hp Pavilion 2700t: Intel Core 2 Duo T5550, 128MB NVIDIA Geforce 8400M, 2 GB Ram, 160 GB-SATA, 14.1 Brightview, 6 Cell Battery

    Nice specs on that unit...I could play flight Sim X at a decent clip on that. even though I have AMD and C2D chips, the C2D is REALLY a good chip. Intel really left AMD "in the dust" with the C2D and Quad chips.

    Did HP simply switch you to that computer at no cost to you? If so, that's a great deal and upgrade!!!

    I'm sure both AMD and Intel processors each have their advantages, but in the end they do the same thing. AMD based notebooks tend to cost less, perform great and in my opinion come with a better graphics card.

    Comparison of two comparably specd and priced 14" HP notebooks:
    HP dv2890 $949 after mail-in rebate
    LINK
    Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 SOURCE
    • 1.66GHz
      667 MHz Front Side Bus
      2MB L2 Cache
      65nm
      34W
    • 250GB hard drive
    • Built-in wireless 802.11agn
    • 3GB of DDR2 memory
    • Burns DVDs and CDs
    • Built-in webcam


    HP dv2810us $679.99 after mail-in rebate
    LINK
    AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 SOURCE
    • 2.0GHz
      1600MHz HyperTransport Bus
      1MB L2 Cache
      65nm
      35W

    • 250GB hard drive
    • Built-in wireless 802.11b/g
    • 3GB of DDR2 memory
    • Burns DVDs and CDs
    • Built-in webcam


    Are there differences? Sure. Are the differences worth $270? Your call.


    I've had my AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56 (HP dv6225us) 1.8GHz for over a year and I'm happy with the purchase.
