I just saw a new HP dv2 notebook with AMD Athlon Neo MV40 at a recent Exhibit. It was a sleek device with quite a low price, almost on par with higher priced Atom netbooks. I'm eager to try it. I read on the brochure that Neo is not comparable to Atom (bigger RAM handler, better integrated graphic), however, at the same price level there are many dual core notebooks (T series) but mostly without the perks of HP dv2 (no dedicated graphic, no HDMI, smaller HD) , and add a little more i'll get core 2 duos (also only with the bare necessities).
How far does HP dv2 go compared with dual core notebooks? I don't know if it's true, but somehow a Pentium dual core doesn't quite give a good ringing on my ears than a core2duo, it's like a Celeron against Pentium. Perhaps somebody already using dv2 can share the experience against dual core.
Any input will be nice. Thanks!!
