The rumors are confirmed by Agnes Kang at ZDNet Asia:
Following its recent partnership with Advanced Micro Devices to put the latter’s chip in its server product line, Dell Computer confirmed this week that it will launch AMD-based laptops as early as October. The move could deal another blow to rival Intel.
Dell will release mobile computers running AMD’s Sempron and Turion 64×2 processors in early October, representatives from both AMD and Dell, told CNET Taiwan. Initial plans will target consumer models equipped with 15.4-inch displays.
