AMD to begin selling low-cost laptops?

By Justin Mann on
Just when we think there couldn't possibly be any more vendors getting in to the “ultra mobile” market, with absolutely no more room on shelves for low-cost laptops, AMD comes out to prove us wrong. Coupling a low-power AMD processor, Radeon-based chipsets, Linux or Windows and several unannounced features, AMD is apparently preparing several different styles and sizes of ultra-portable laptops. Prices aren't mentioned nor are specific hardware components, which makes this late-coming AMD entry somewhat mysterious.

Even so, the units seem to have a variety of configurations on the surface and further help to dispel the rumor that hardware manufacturers can't make a profit selling low-cost hardware. Clearly, if that was the case, we wouldn't have gone from a single vendor to a half dozen trying to peddle the same thing in less than two years. Interesting stuff.
