Dell begins selling AMD-based laptops

Dell AMD Laptops

Having begun shipping its AMD-based desktops in September, Dell today released its first portables using non-Intel processors. Buyers can now order the Inspiron E1501, an AMD equivalent to the Intel-based E1505 model. Unlike the latter, the E1501 is aimed directly at basic users and is equipped with a 1.8GHz Sempron, 512MB of RAM, and a 60GB hard drive in its base $549 configuration. The system can be custom-built to include as much as a dual-core 1.8GHz Turion 64 X2, 2GB of RAM, and an 80GB hard drive. Bluetooth, dedicated graphics, and other options have been stripped from the model to emphasize its economy focus. Factory-stock models are available immediately.
