I hate x86. You all know this. I despise 32 bit.

You want a heavy power CPU for the laptop?

64 bit PowerPC chips starting in 2 and 4 cores next year. www.PAsemi.com

They're also designing 16 core versions.

And yes, this is all following the Power per watt mobile technology trend for new CPU's.




DBHI, Go play.

if the PP has good connectivity options, you use a connection to your remote computing engine to do all the hard work... "distcc" for example to do any compilation.

as soon you wind up the processing power you suffer heat problems and reduced battery life. so long as the PP can play VGA quality full motion video, then I think that's sufficient power... oh yeah, and crack a 128 bit wep key in less than 20 minutes smile.gif
