  Centrino still the one to beat?

Regarding your comment:

On the mobile front Centrino Technology, based on Intel's Yonah processor will probably be the mobile platform of choice for 2006 unless AMD pulls a trick out of its hat with Taylor.

This somehow implies that the Turion is doing nothing in the laptop world. I'm sure you realize that AMD did recently credit the growth rate in its Turion business (alongside its Opteron server business) as being responsible for its blowout last quarter, the one where it beat Wall Street earnings estimates by 125%. And really that was the first time that Turion was available to be bought by the public, as the first batch of recently-designed Turion systems became available for sale.

That meant a 73% increase in mobile processor shipments. That doesn't sound like an unsuccessful product to me. The same quarter quarter, Intel did announce some softness in its mobile business, saying that more people were buying Mobile Celerons than Centrinos.
