AMD: Line between netbooks and notebook will blur

Posted on Friday, January 23 2009 @ 16:51:58 CET by

AMD CEO Dirk Meyer told investors that he believes the line between netbooks and notebooks will continue to blur. AMD isn't working on its own netbook platform, instead it offers the Yukon platform for cheap ultraportable notebooks.
"The distinction between what is a Netbook and what is a notebook is going to go away," says Meyer "There will be a continuum of price points and form factors." He believes consumers who get a cheap netbook have to compromise, and don't enjoy a full PC experience, especially when it comes to graphics and media capabilities. On the other hand, people who want thin and light computers without these compromises have to dish out over a thousand dollars.

This is where AMD's Neo and Intel's upcoming CULV enter the fray, and Meyer is optimistic these new ultra-thin notebooks will be the new black. The fact that Intel is interested in the same market to some extent backs up Meyer's take on things.
