Top AMD Fusion netbooks in Australia

See reviews of the latest AMD Fusion notebooks from Toshiba, Sony, MSI, Dell

AMD Fusion netbooks are a step up from traditional netbooks, which are based on Intel Atom CPUs. The AMD Fusion APU (accelerated processing unit) supplies more overall speed for office and Web applications than an Intel-based netbook, and not only that, the AMD Fusion provides much better graphics capabilities.

AMD Fusion-based netbooks feature an HDMI port, so you can easily hook them up to a big-screen TV, and some models even have more advanced features such as USB 3.0. The overall size of AMD Fusion-based netbooks is larger, too; with many models being 11.6in or bigger, they are more comfortable to use than 10in netbooks. Below is a round-up of all the AMD Fusion-based netbooks we have seen to date.

Sony VAIO YB Series (VPCYB16KG)

The Sony VAIO YB Series is one of the best little laptops on the market. Its screen quality is excellent, it performs well, and it has good looks as well as plenty of useful features. We recommend it to anyone who wants a sub-$1000 ultraportable laptop that isn't a netbook. Perhaps go for a colour other than pink though.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
