More AMD Laptops From Taiwan Makers

Acer, Asustek and BenQ seem to be standing firm on their decisions to launch notebooks built using processors from AMD, despite growing pressure from Intel. New AMD-based products are essential to their efforts to boost sales of own-brand notebooks in the global market, particularly in Europe. Acer became the second-largest notebook brand vendor in Europe in the third and fourth quarter of last year and has a chance to become No. 1 in the first quarter of this year. The recent launch of its Aspire 1500-series notebooks made Acer the first Taiwanese vendor to use AMD’s Athlon 64 processors. Acer is also building its Aspire 1300- and 1350-series notebooks using AMD’s Athlon and Athlon XP-M processors, respectively. Asustek is likely to launch notebooks with AMD’s Athlon 64 processors in mid-April. It has already marketed its A2500D notebook, using ADM’s Athlon XP-M processors. BenQ is expected to launch its first AMD-based notebooks in the second quarter, using AMD’s 32- and 64-bit processors.
