First ting that hit my mind was "crap poor battery life". Don't know how they'll pull it off, because to me the entire principle of a notebook is long battery life. To me a macine with a dual core and probably equally as high parts would just eat it up.

How long do you think a:

7800GTX Go
2 GB PC3200
100GB HD
Creative blaster sound Audigy
<ghetto alienware mobo>

Like half an hour :) ?

An interestin proposal by alienware though.

Actually AMD is working on a Dual Core Turion, which will be designed to only draw up to 35W. That is compared to Intel's Yonah, which will draw more than 40 or even 50W
