HP is a big proponent of AMD processors, so it's no surprise that Turion-based systems are a big part of the company's plans. The Compaq Presario V2000 ($1,299 direct) is currently shipping with the Turion ML-37. At 2 GHz, it's the fastest-clocked Turion system we've tested yet. With an 80GB hard drive and a DVD±RW drive, it's a nice midrange system for the home office or the back-to-school crowd.
