It seems that AMD has been hiding its range of new laptop processors, and has not yet revealed any information about them. But its partners seem to have none of its hang-ups, and have published configurations of various upcoming laptops of varying budgets that include new AMD Phenom II processors (such as the 2.1GHz Phenom II X3 N830 and 2GHz Phenom II X4 N930), and even new Dual-Core V series. Let us start with a look at the new Dell Inspiron laptop, the M501R, as it also packs a brand new ATI GPU we’ve never heard of before!
