  1. It seems AMD will be making some important inroads into the notebook market with their latest mobile chips. Following the recent launch of over a dozen AMD-based HP laptops, Reuters is reporting the company has nabbed no less than 109 design wins for a "new generation of power-efficient chips" due next week. This is a two-fold improvement from the "over 50" design wins it expected with the Tigris platform announced back in September 2009.

    The CPU side of AMD needs to start operating like ATI. Come up with products that have a great performance/power-consumption ratio. They might not be the fastest but that's not really what you're looking for in a laptop.

    A good battery life with decent performance is sought after much more than pure horsepower in my opinion.
     
  3. Right on Didou,

    I would love to have a netbook/notebook laptop with ability to play counterstrike source for just under $300. Competition is always good, keep them on their toes and keeps them innovating and forces prices to adjust. The integrated IGP is getting 'slowly' better every year.
