The Compaq Evo N1015v laptop has a good overall showing for itself. It is a good performer on business applications and does fairly well at content creation. The gaming aspect of the laptop is a mixed bag, but again this series of laptops from Compaq is not meant as a gaming machine in any way.

If you are looking for a new laptop to use for business and very mild games on the road, the Compaq Evo series is a very good choice, especially considering the price point that the system starts at. They can be purchased for MSRPs as low as $899 and the model that we reviewed here has an MSRP of $1299. Better prices than that may also be found if you look for the right deals and rebates galore.

What is of most interest now is to find out where the AMD mobile market is headed next. Barton core processors, first released in the form of the desktop Athlon XP 3000+, are going to be coming to mobile platforms in the form of the new Athlon XP SFF processors. And AMD has had the mobile version of the Hammer technology scheduled to be released sometime in Q4 of this year. It will be very interesting to see how each of these two new technologies changes the way the mobile looks upon AMD’s products. Will we see a large growth of AMD in the thin and light market or will they continue to be stuff in the desktop replacement category? Only time will tell us the verdict on that.

Even with the growing market of AMD-based notebook computers, the Compaq Evo series is among the best available. If or when you are in the market for a new mobile computer, put it in your list to shop for.
