AMD yesterday announced it had begun shipping its latest 32-bit mobile Athlon processor, the XP-M 2100+.

The part is pitched at thin'n'light notebooks at all price points, with the chip itself costing a mere $97 in batches of 1000 processors.

One customer is Fujitsu, which said it will build the chip into its LifeBook S2000 notebook. The new model went on sale yesterday. A number of Taiwanese contract manufacturers will follow its lead later this year, AMD said. ®
