This one sports an AMD E-Series processor E-350 with Vision Technology and ATI Radeon HD 6310 graphics.

  • Acer already has these

    Acer has been shipping the Aspire 5253 for more than a few weeks now with pretty much identical specs. Acer, of course, owns Gateway too.

    We've been selling the 4GB+500GB config for $549.99CDN (SKU BZ400) for a while now. It's a good seller too.

    I really hope to see some Vision Pro-validated models with the Fusion APU in larger screens soon. So far, I've only seen the Lenovo x120e, but it's only an 11.6-incher. Ideally, I'd like to see 13-14" models too.

    The Fusion A-series APU's are going to kick ass in Q3. They make integrated systems exciting and fun again.
