Don’t count AMD as being out. In response to the ever growing netbook/small laptop market, AMD and HP have recently announced an update to the HP dv2. We liked the original dv2 — however, adding a little more grunt to it with an improved processor can only be a good thing.
Using the Neo CPU, the updated HP Pavillion dv2 is expected to be available on June 10th, and will have pretty much the same feature set and price point as the original dv2. AMD has been struggling lately against Intel, so it’ll be interesting to see what’s coming up in the near future for the CPU manufacturer.
