The hot spot in notebook pricing right now falls between $600 and $1200, Stephen Baker, director of industry analysis with NPD Techworld in Reston, Virginia said. "When you look at it, in those price zones, there's really no reason to buy a desktop," he said.
The starting prices for the three new AMD-equipped product families all fall within that range, but those systems usually feature AMD's Mobile Sempron processor, a less powerful chip. However, upgrading to a Turion chip on the Compaq Presario M2000Z notebook costs just $75 more than the notebook's starting price of $729 after rebate, according to HP's Web page.
These new AMD notebooks are available immediately on HP's Web site.
