AMD released Fusion in January and KitGuru has reviewed many motherboards and systems from partners … all to this point within a desktop environment. Today we are analysing the new Hewlett Packard Pavilion DM1z, our first look at AMD’s Fusion technology in the mobile space.
Intel have been ruling the mobile market for quite some time now, the low powered ATOM and ultra low voltage processors have been adopted by many system makers thanks to the competitive pricing and relatively good power drain. It is time for AMD to stand up and start fighting back.
The Hewlett Packard DM1Z on paper looks mighty impressive. It is supplied with the formidable 1.6Ghz AMD E-350 processor, a 320GB 7,200 rpm Hard drive, 4GB of DDR3 memory and a tasty 11.6 inch LED screen. WiFi and Bluetooth also make the grade.
