AMD-based notebooks coming from Dell by year's end

Dell has confirmed that story that DailyTech reported on last week concerning the company's plans to put AMD processors in notebooks. A company official who spoke with CNET Asia confirmed that Dell will begin by offering 15.4" notebooks this October built using Sempron and Turion 64 X2 mobile processors.

"This is not a big deal. In order to remain competitive, we have to make sure that we have [a wide] enough variety of products to meet the market demand," stated a Dell executive who chose to remain anonymous. "This is a sensitive topic, though we won't deny the fact that we are working with Dell on desktop and notebook PCs," said AMD’s general manager of Taiwanese operations. Chou went on to say, “Consumers will be able to buy AMD-based computers from Dell by the end of the year."

While Dell won’t be able to offer the large variety of notebook designs covering all segments of the market as is the case with the company’s current Intel-based offerings, it’s a good start. Dell first announced their plans to use AMD Opteron processors in May of this year and that was seen as a watershed moment for the both companies.
