Cebit 2011: Bunch of notebooks, netbooks and nettops
It looks like AMD partners really like the Brazos platform as we had a chance to see a bunch of those at Cebit and some of them really look pretty nice if you ask us. It was pretty hard to find a Fusion equipped product but according to AMD it should change pretty soon and availability will most certainly improve.
Almost every important partner has showcased at least one product based on AMD's Fusion and some of those notebooks, netbooks and nettops really look nice. We already wrote about MSI's and Asus' netbooks and notebooks and even tablets, while AMD was keen to show a bunch of other Fusion wins from partners like Acer, Sony, Lenovo and others.
Sony's VAIO Y-Series 11.6-incher with AMD's dual-core E-350 APU really looks nice and Acer's Aspire One 522 10-incher with C-50 APU ain't half bad either. Lenovo's 11.6-inch E-350 APU equipped IdeaPad S205 was also there next to the IdeaPad SG575, a 15.6-incher with E-350 APU. Acer also has a 15.6-incher with E-350 as well and it looks like Fusion will be in a wide range of sizes and formats.
We also had a chance to see a couple of nettops including the Asus' EeeBox PC EB1021 with E-350, Tul/Powercolor Mini PC and Zotac's ZBOX Blu-ray AD03 equipped with E-350 APU and Blu-ray drive.
Partners that we had a chance to talk to about Fusion are pretty confident about the product, as everyone wants a piece of that cake. Honestly, we can't say that we are surprised.
