Intel Centrino Duo vs. AMD Turion™ 64 X2 for Linux

Currently HP is offering many of its laptops with AMD Turion™ 64 X2. I'm wondering whether this has any advantages or drawbacks if you use it in Linux in comparison to a laptop with a Centrino Duo processor? Did anyone have experience installing Linux on a machine with AMD Turion™ 64 X2?

Well, centrino chipset is easily supported by linux. Usualy. And Turion is gonna be a heck of a lot more powerful. Hope that's enough to make a decision for ya cause it's all I got.
