AMD Athlon 2650e spotted in a cheap notebook

Circuit City has the goods


AMD still
lacks a CPU to take on Intel's overhyped Atom, and this is a fact we love to point out, much to AMD's dismay.

However, things seem to be picking up for the green outfit, and for the first time we've managed to find an actual product based on its Athlon 2650e power efficient CPU, thanks to one of our readers. We wrote about the CPU back in September, but AMD took its time bringing it to market.

Circuit City is listing the eMachines eMD620-5133, a 14.1-inch notebook powered by the 2650e, coupled with a RS690MC chipset. Although the 2650e draws a bit more power than the Atom, the RS690MC helps even out the score, and it offers a decent IGP to boot. The notebook packs 2GB of memory, 160GB of storage and ships with Vista Home Basic.

It sells for $449 after a mail in rebate, and this sounds like a rather good deal. Let's just hope we see more power efficient Athlons in some smaller notebooks, or netbooks soon.

You can find the listing here, thanks Alex!
