Walmart has partnered with THX to offer an inexpensive laptop powered by the latest mid-range AMD Ryzen CPUs. The model sports both narrow bezels and an aluminum chassis which are uncommon features at this price range.

Earlier this year, Walmart introduced its own lineup of gaming PCs called Overpowered. The series focuses on high performance at aggressively lower prices than what you'd find from other OEMs like Asus, MSI, HP, and others. Walmart is now ready to take a similar approach in the budget-midrange laptop space with a new house brand called Motile.

The Motile series consists of only one 14.1-inch model with no 15.6-inch versions for now. In order to keep costs low, initial SKUs will come with either 2nd gen AMD Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 processors instead of the more common Intel Core U series. The series boasts THX-certified speakers and 1080p displays as unique selling points in a big sea of competing alternatives.

The Ryzen 3 and Ryzen 5 SKUs start at just $500 and $600, respectively, with Black, Rose Gold, and Silver color options. Unfortunately, the specifications sheet does not specify whether the processor is a Ryzen 3 3200U or 3300U. In either case, expect raw performance to be most similar to a Core i3-8145U.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
