AMD 64-bit dual-core notebooks keep pricing edge

The unit price of AMD Turion 64 X2-based notebooks is about US$150 less than an Intel Core 2 Duo (Merom)-based notebook, according to product portfolios that notebook vendors have offered. AMD still has an edge in pricing to compete in the 64-bit dual-core notebook market, sources at notebook vendors indicated, adding that the sufficient performance of the Turion 64 X2 CPU has also caught the attention of buyers.

Hewlett Packard (HP) offers its Pavilion dv6000z, which features the AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile processor (1.80GHz/512KB), at a price tag of US$898. The suggested price is US$156 cheaper than an HP Pavilion dv600t, which is based on the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile CPU (1.83GHz, 667MHz FSB, 2MB cache).
