AMD ships mobile 2200+

Pleasant change

AMD yesterday launched the mobile Athlon XP 2200+, and in a pleasant change from recent 'launches', actually has parts in stock to ship. Fujitsu Siemens, AMD's biggest customer in Europe, is fitting in the 2200+ into the AMILO A-x600 series and it has stock available now. Time Computers, a major UK system builder and probably AMD's second biggest customer in Europe, is prepping a notebook launch featuring the part and in Japan, Epson Direct is expected to launch a notebook too.

And in the US? You can go buy a 2200+ notebook from the Home Shopping Network. This is not exactly the first name to trip off our tongues when we're thinking of buying a new notebook. But if stocks are tight, then this can be guaranteed to choke off demand...

HSN's exclusive offer is an unbranded 2200+XP laptop retailing for $1,498. You can check out the spec here. ®
