Top AMD Fusion netbooks in Australia

See reviews of the latest AMD Fusion notebooks from Toshiba, Sony, MSI, Dell

AMD Fusion netbooks are a step up from traditional netbooks, which are based on Intel Atom CPUs. The AMD Fusion APU (accelerated processing unit) supplies more overall speed for office and Web applications than an Intel-based netbook, and not only that, the AMD Fusion provides much better graphics capabilities.

AMD Fusion-based netbooks feature an HDMI port, so you can easily hook them up to a big-screen TV, and some models even have more advanced features such as USB 3.0. The overall size of AMD Fusion-based netbooks is larger, too; with many models being 11.6in or bigger, they are more comfortable to use than 10in netbooks. Below is a round-up of all the AMD Fusion-based netbooks we have seen to date.

HP Pavilion dm1-3010AU

HP's Pavilion dm1 has good graphics performance and battery life for a netbook, thanks to AMD's Fusion APU. It's a well designed unit with good looks and we found it very comfortable to use. However, it does have a loud fan and one of the keys on our test model was loose straight out of the box.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
