ACER Aspire 5002LCi with Turion 1.6 HELP!!!

by petko1979 / May 24, 2005 5:37 PM PDT

Hi i need your help here. I've decided to buy a notebook recently and the Acer Aspire 5002 LCi realy caught my eye:
These are the main specification of the model:

AMD Turion? ML30 1.6GHz, 1MB L2, 400 MHz FSB- AMD PowerNow!? technology, AMD HT technology
Memory: 2x256 MB DDRAM
Battery: 8 cell
Price: 800 euro or 1030$

So the main thing that bothers me is the new processor Turion since there are no client Reviews in the web about the performance of this CPU. So i'm asking anyone who is using Turion cpu, or even better- own a notebook like this one, to write about the performance of the cpu and/ or the notebook.
Thank you all !

Just FYI.

That's a mobile version and should underperform the former Athlon 64 not as mobile version by a bit less. But the battery life should beat the older version.

Hope this helps.

Sempron or Turion?

What do you think? Which will be faster?
3000 Mhz Sempron or 1600 Mhz Turion
I'll be using it for programming most of the time.

If you want speed, you don't want Mobile chips. You go for the full up P4's with HT and have no battery life, and a laptop that can't sit on your lap.

Your goal is unclear here.

The goal is to choose the best laptop for as little money as possible.
The ACER with sempron worths 600 euro and the ACER with Turion is 800 euro, so I want to know which is faster 3 Ghz Sempron or 1.6 Ghz Turion.

Faster at what?

It doesn't matter. You'll have to get BENCHMARKS to figure this one out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
