The ones up are enthusiast class ones i.e 990FX chipset so in general you'd have to look at 970/980G lor Even so i think the ECS 990FX would be priced great locally hehe

any hope of seeing a Llano notebook/netbook on sale at the PC show next month?

Or even the next one in September?

Should be able to c AMD llano notebook at pc show next month
provided that distro here are not sloppy in bringing new AMD
products.

There's already leak info about HP DV6 based on AMD llano
so should be able to c it next month.
Best to wait till September than u will c more of AMD Llano notebooks.

FYI AMD llano is for notebooks not for netbook, it will be a killer
netbook if OEM is able to squeeze the lower end
model E2-3000M (Dual core + HD6380) into a 12 inch netbook.

Possible but cooling for the chip may pose a problem as the wattage
is at 35 watt.

Hmmm... I don't think that Llano can fight against quad-core Sandy Bridges like i7-2630QM right? Considering that it handily trounces my Phenom II 955

Llano is good but doesnt mean it will take off.

Still need to see how notebook maker pushing the product but most importantly i feel is the mindset of the buyer.

Honestly the mass market really don't know how to choose notebooks like us. Last IT Show Arrandale notebooks were still flying off the shelves. I found it quite funny, since there were similarly specced Sandy Bridge laptops priced similarly to the Arrandale ones. Consumer ignorance FTW.

AMD has mention that AMD Llano cannot match Intel i7-2630
cpu speed but will compensate that with a powerful integraded graphics.
AMD Llano cpu speed is on par with Intel i3 according to previous
leaked info.

Other than mass market don't know much IT but also
brand preferences.
Most people in SG will still prefer Intel mobile over AMD.

Most laptop/desktop (Other than DIY) in SG carries a blue sticker.
Very seldom u will c red sticker out there.

AMD-A series may have a hard time here and pricing of
AMD-A is also a issue.
Now Intel i3 laptop goes as low as $800 so how AMD notebook
is going to be price?

Up to $599 - AMD Brazos platform
Up to $800 - Intel i3
Up to $1000 - Intel i5
Up to $1.3 - Intel i7

So how's AMD pricing going to be like?
There's also SKU for AMD-A crossfire notebooks, will these
SKU be price above i7 or below?

Only next week than we will find out.
