New AMD chip ready to roll in notebooks

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) on Monday released a new mobile processor and announced the chip is available in notebooks immediately, breaking the trend of its last few processor launches.

The Mobile AMD Athlon XP 2200+ can be found in Fujitsu Siemens Computers (Holding) BV's Amilo A-x600 series notebooks in Europe. Interested buyers in the U.S. will be able to find notebooks with the processor on the Home Shopping Network's Web site, http://www.hsn.com/. The site currently features an AMD-equipped Excelente notebook from Ashton Digital Corp.

AMD's last several desktop processors have taken some time making their way into systems, with some processors announced in August just starting to make their way into systems now.

The new Mobile Athlon XP 2200+ will be priced at US$186 in 1,000-unit quantities. AMD's current performance leader among mobile processors, the Mobile Athlon XP 2000+, is priced at $345. The lower price for the new chip should mean prices are set to decline across AMD's Mobile Athlon XP line.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
