The MSI Megabook S271 is based around a Turion X2, in the model AnandTech reviews, it is a TL-50 (1.60 GHz with dual 256K L2 cache).  Recently they compared this laptop to a Core 2 Duo based machine; this review is all MSI.  They cover everything from customization and betery life to MSI support.

"We managed to get our hands on an MSI S271 ultraportable laptop equipped with a Turion X2 several months back and planned on doing a

head-to-head comparison against Intel's Core Duo. Unfortunately, various issues delayed our article and it is only now that we are finally

able to present the results. Of course, Intel has now launched Core 2 Duo (Merom), raising the performance bar in the dual core mobile

market.

So what sort of problems did we encounter with the MSI laptop? Once they were resolved how does it perform? In short, does it compete well

with Intel's offerings, and should you consider buying one? Let's take a closer look."
