    Has AMD missed its chance with Puma?

    Frankly, yes.

    This is the "silly season" for laptop buying, it gets worse next month and by that time they need laptops on the shelves. They actually have an awesome product with PUMA, those that understand what it provides, really do seem to want it. Those that don't understand exactly what they are getting, are paying what they would have for a basic integratd graphics laptop anyway.. a good deal all round.

    That can't happen if no one rolls out a laptop using it though. First reviews in the states have been postive, smaller laptops like the xpe M1330 and vaio SZ and new SR and Z's would have been perfect for PUMA imo but they are all going centrino 2 with either nvidia or ati(amd) discrete cards.

    Come on AMD

    There are 4 models available at HP.com, the TX2500, dv5x, 6536b & 6735b. At Toshibadirect.com you have the L305D, P305D and the U405D series. AFAIK, these are available worldwide. As for retail outlets, BestBuy and Circuit City in the US have several of these models. MSI global lists several Puma models, but have made non available yet. Conversely, MSI USA lists only one 17" model which is also no available yet. There is no hint from any of the other notebook OEMs.

    Re: Headlines - Has AMD missed its chance with Puma?

    Yeah but where are they!!? hp.co.uk dont have them. Dell will hold off on centrino 2 and PUMA no doubt (if they intend to adopt PUMA) and sony seem to have passed on it for now, although I'm sure it would make for a nice revision to the N series.

    MSI don't really sell enough laptops to be important imo, toshiba isn't bad but still no real availability in the UK as far as I can tell.

    Acer, Dell, HP, lenovo, ASUS (perhaps).. are the names we need to see selling them and we just aren't really. The Dv5z is one that would be good to have for the back to school shoppers.
