Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Sony is to use AMD's K6-2 processor in its forthcoming line of consumer PCs. The news comes one day before AMD is due to release its latest quarterly results. The Japanese consumer electronics giant will be using the 350MHz K6-2 in its Vaio Compo line due to go on sale at the end of the month. Sony's decision to use the AMD processor follows similar moves by Compaq, IBM and Hewlett-Packard. These three also use the chip in consumer-oriented systems. The Sony deal is likely to help dampen the effects of AMD's expected quarterly loss, due to be announced tomorrow and which is now expected to be less than expected. According to US media, the company will lose between 5c and 12c per share, up from the 14c a share being predicted last week. ® Click for more stories
