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.
