Fusion netbook availability to be limited

Written by Fuad Abazovic
fusion

Starts this week
AMD says Fusion notebooks are available as of today, but we were warned that availability might not be that great in the beginning.

You should expect to find some Fusion notebooks in shops sometime in January, but this will depend on the place where you live and the size of the market. We didn’t get a precise answer on which netbook has better chance of availability, but it is either Lenovo, Asus, MSI or Sony.

Company representatives expect much better availability in February and onward, and it is hoped that most partners will price its netbooks around $350 suggested retail price for a dual-core APU. Single-core versions can get even cheaper, about $299 is also possible.

Of course AMD partners are the ones responsible for the final pricing and in case they put a lot of stuff in their netbooks, you might see them in a much more expensive price range.

We have to see if these will sell well, but the first impression is very positive. They definitely beat standard Atom netbooks by a wide margin.
