AMD's Booth

For the very first time ever, AMD puts up a booth at an IT fair to showcases a variety of notebooks powered by its AMD Phenom II, Turion II and Neo series of processors. Situated at Level 4, it's certainly a big hurrah for AMD fans!

The Acer Aspire 4551G is loaded with the AMD Phenom II X3 triple-core mobile processor N830 (2.1GHz, 1.5MB L2 cache) and comes with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. Priced at $1,398 (usual price $1,598), you'll also get 4GB DDR3 RAM, 640GB HDD and a 14-inch display.

Portability will be the Acer FO200's unique selling point, with its AMD Athlon X2 dual-core processor L310 (1.2GHz, 1MB L2 cache) and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit accompanying it. The FO200 also comes with 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and a 11.6-inch display for $1,298 (usual price $1,598).

The Toshiba Satellite L645-1056X is powered by AMD's Phenom II triple-core P820 (1.8GHz) processor and loaded with Microsoft's Windows 7 Home Premium. For $1,399, other add-ons for this 14-inch notebook includes a 640GB SATA HDD and 4GB DDR3 RAM.

One of the best buys at the AMD booth is the Lenovo ThinkPad X100e, priced at $799. For that price, you get an ultraportable notebook with an AMD Athlon Neo processor MV-40 (1.6GHz, 512KB L2 cache), Windows 7 Professional, 2GH DDR2 RAM and a 250GB SATA HDD.

Traditionally, Compaq notebooks have been one of the more affordable range. At the AMD booth, we saw the Compaq Presario CQ40, which comes with an AMD Turio Ultra ZM85 (2.3GHz) processor, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD and a 14-inch screen. All that, for $1,099.
