AMD's new Pavilion 10z notebook is the first major design win for AMD's new "Mullins" budget mobile chip.
AMD's new Mullins processors has been designed for low-cost laptops or tablets.
HP's latest notebook, the Pavilion 10z, is the first major device to ship with a Mullins chip. Prices at $249.99, the 10z features an AMD dual-core E1 Micro-6200T processor with Radeon R2 graphics powering Windows 8.1, 2GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, and 1,366x768 10.1-inch touchscreen.
It remains to be seen how well the new Mullins processor performs, since it does include a Turbo mode to boost the clock speed in certain situations. AMD is also touting its Enduro technology for improved battery life, but HP's spec sheet is claiming that the 10z will only get up to 4 hours of battery life.
