A new 17.3-in AMD Brazos-based DreamBook Power W27-0B laptop emerges

This notebook will feature a Dual-Core AMD processor, integrated graphics and USB 2.0 connectivity

The Australian PC builder Pioneer Computers has apparently decided to add an AMD Brazos member to its DreamBook Power Series of laptops. Users willing to own one of those can customize it before the actual purchase and should be prepared to pay about US $596.

The standard configuration of the Power W27-0B model incorporates a Zacate AMD E-350 accelerated processing unit (APU) that houses two Bobcat cores with a clock frequency of 1.6GHz. Manufactured in 40nm technology, this chip delivers 1MB of Level 2 cache, low energy consumption and 64-bit support. For more information, you can refer to our CPU Benchmark List.

The pre-configured unit on Pioneer’s website is built-around an AMD A50M chipset (Brazos platform) and sports a 17.3-inch widescreen display with an HD+ native resolution of 1600-by-900 pixels (a Full HD option is also available). Graphics are taken care of by an integrated AMD Radeon HD 6310 controller with up to 1.5GB of shared video memory.

According to the product page, the new notebook packs up to 8GB of internal DDR RAM, a changeable 2.5-inch SATA HDD and a DVD Burner.

In terms of networking, the Power W27-0B ships with built-in Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0+HS and Ethernet LAN modules. Moreover, consumers are provided with three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI interface, a 9-in-1 card reader and a web camera for video chats.

Pioneer Computer’s latest portable PC runs a copy of Windows 7 64-bit operating system and has a starting weight of 2.9kg with the integrated 6-cell Lithium-ion battery.
