AMD processors will soon be available in two upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad models, marking an end to Intel's long-time monopoly on the notebook line.

Having acquired the ThinkPad line from its acquisition of IBM's PC business in 2004, Lenovo said in separate statements emailed on Monday that the ThinkPad X100e and the 13-inch version of the new ThinkPad Edge series will carry AMD processors.

The announcement marks the first time the mobile computers will incorporate non-Intel chips.
