AMD marketing VP bashes netbooks

Posted on Wednesday, September 17 2008 @ 19:16:44 CEST by

AMD VP of advanced marketing Pat Moorhead was asked about netbooks and he basically said he wasn't impressed by these machines. Moorhead stated they are more expensive than they're supposed to be and don't liver a good battery life.
Despite Intel’s fabrication plants working like crazy to meet demand (and being featured in more and more devices from big-name companies), Moorhead says AMD are “taking a wait and see attitude on it”. He also goes on to criticize the price creep in the segment, where machines that initially aimed for a $299 price tag are now nearer to $499.

“You would expect 8 or 9 hours out of a netbook because it’s small - maybe you’ll compare it to a cell phone. In fact, for some of the ones that I’ve tested, probably the hottest one has an 1h45 of battery life. You’re not going to take that with you as a road warrior… Around the house it seems okay” Pat Moorhead, VP of advanced marketing, AMD
