ASUS AMD notebooks

Computer maker ASUS is preparing three new AMD-based notebooks for release in October. Beginning the list is the 17.1-inch G2K, which features a 2GHz Turion 64 X2 processor, along with 2GB of RAM and a 200GB, 7,200rpm hard drive. The video card is a 256MB Radeon HD2600; importantly, video outputs include HDMI in addition to VGA, composite and S-Video. Miscellaneous features include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a Super Multi DVD drive and slots for memory cards and ExpressCards.

The A7K (pictured) is similar to the G2K, but uses a 1.8GHz Turion 64 X2, strips HDMI, and switches to a 250GB hard drive with no RPM rating specified. The F7K, finally, boosts the processor speed to 1.9GHz, but uses a 5,400rpm 250GB drive and scales the video card back to a Radeon HD2400. Some compensation comes in the form of a hybrid TV tuner. No prices for the laptops have been mentioned. [via Notebook Italia]
