Looks like a nice chip, and FINALLY gives us an easy way to tell just
WHICH processor a notebook has (assuming the manufacturers stick to
AMD's nomenclature). No more guessing if they used the "Desktop
Replacement" Mobile AthlonXP, the "Mainstream" Mobile AthlonXP or the
"Thin and light" Mobile AthlonXP, all of which were labeled the same.

Of course, the big question is whether or not we'll actually see
laptops using this chip.

Besides the just introduced ML and MT models, they said that later on
they might introduce MU, MV, MX, & MZ models, each one conforming to a
slightly different thermal envelope. I would assume that each higher
letter conforms to lower power consumption.

Maybe just in Japan, to avoid giving the JFTC any more ammo. :-)
