Bobcat or wait for Llano?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm selling my current laptop and looking for something less power consuming. I won't really use it for any heavy gaming. Just basic web browsing, maybe some light gaming but that's about it. Should note that I want a laptop, not a netbook. I would imagine that a Bobcat/E-350 laptop would be fine for that but I have heard Bobcat is slow when it comes to multi-tasking. Which is a turn off for me. What do you all think? Should I wait for Llano?

Depends on what kind of games and at which resolution you'll want to play.

Even though Bobcat is faster than Atom and very energy efficient, it still is very limited for gaming.

I'd say wait for Llano if you want to play most games on medium settings with acceptable fps (min. 30+).

Basic source and some modern games on low
I would go for bobcat

Of you want medium to high on more modern games I would wait for llano
The top end model has 400sp which is the same as a desktop 5570 at the same clocks and I've ran bc2 maxed at 1366x768 with it paired with a c2d

There is also an E-450 coming out that will only have a slight freq bump but should have faster gpu clocks and memory. Later in the year though according to anand.
