Hewlett-Packard (HP) on Monday launched a notebook based on an 850MHz Duron processor from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).
The HP Pavilion n5430 will use the 850MHz processor from AMD's low-cost Duron family of processors, and also feature 128M bytes of RAM and a 20G-byte hard drive, according to information on HP's Web site. The notebook weighs 7.4 pounds and has a 14.1-inch (35.8 centimeter) TFT (thin-film transistor) display.
HP also launched a system based on AMD's high-end Athlon 4 processor Monday, which was available from electronics retailer Best Buy Co. last week. The Pavilion n5430 will begin shipping on July 1, according to a statement from AMD. It is priced at US$1,399 after a rebate obtained directly from HP, according to HP's Web site.
