    Which of these chipsets run hotter, (or cooler)....
    I thought it was AMD. I heard, correct me if I'm wrong, they are more efficient.
    Also is battery life similar on both of these chipsets?

    thanks

    I have heard that generally AMD chips do run a little hotter.

    I have the Toshiba X205-9349 with Intel T7300 2Ghz cpu and an HP 9225us that my son uses with a AMD Turion 2Ghz cpu and so far I noticed the Turion does exhaust hotter air than my T7300 and the fan on the HP is on at higher speeds as well, so I would say the AMD's run hotter.

    They should be around the same.
    It is probably more dependent on how the heatsink/fan is set up and where the cpu is located.
