In a move that defies eMachines' company's reputation for producing low-end PCs, the company has rolled out a notebook based on AMD's Mobile Athlon 64 processor. Best Buy is hawking eMachines' M6805, which sports an Athlon 64 3000+ processor, Radeon 9600 graphics with 64MB of video memory, 15" widescreen display with a maximum resolution of 1280x800, 512MB of DDR333, and 60GB hard drive all for a penny under $1,550. With a weight hovering around 7.5lbs, the M6805 isn't a lightweight, but the notebook has enough power under the hood to be a formidable desktop replacement.
Best Buy's web site currently lists the M6805 as in stock and shipping in 1-2 business days. Some of Best Buy's retail stores will also have a limited number of the notebooks available.
