Here Come the AMD Netbooks: Hands-on with Acer Aspire One 521 and Gateway LT2203

Laptopmag: "Up until now AMD has steered clear of 10-inch netbooks, focusing more on ultralight systems with 11.6 inch or larger screens. But here at the Netbook Summit the company was showing off three 10-inch mini laptops, the Acer Aspire One 521, and the Gateway LT22 and LT2203. There are subtle difference between the three systems, but they all feature AMD’s 1.2-GHz V105 processor paired with ATI Radeon HD 4225 graphics (running Windows 7 Starter). The chipmaker claims that users should expect comparable performance to netbooks equipped with Nvidia Ion 2 technology. However, based on our brief hands-on time with the three machines we’d say that the jury is out.

On one of the netbooks AMD was playing a 1080p HD video from Microsoft’s WMV showcase, and it looked fairly smooth. And since all three of these systems have HDMI output, you would be able to enjoy full high-def quality on a larger monitor. The screens themselves are limited to 1024 x 600 pixels."
