AMD-based commercial solutions from leading PC vendors address customer and reseller demand for greater choice in business environments
23 October 2014 - AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced it is seeing significant growth in demand for AMD-technology-based commercial systems, as they deliver the right mix of computing and graphic experiences required by commercial users in the modern workforce. Major PC vendors including Acer, HP, and Lenovo are now offering AMD-based commercial desktop and notebook solutions in response to the demand for more choice from business and public sector customers.
"Leading PC and system vendors are increasingly considering AMD options and the benefits AMD APUs can bring to their business," said James Blackman, commercial channel manager EMEA at AMD. "That's having a real impact and some very large and well-known organisations have already chosen AMD technology. End-users in both the commercial and public sectors are well aware of the potential performance and cost advantages that AMD processors offer today; something that channel partners and systems vendors can't afford to ignore."
The company's processors have been placed at the heart of Acer's Veriton professional range of desktop and thin client solutions, the new HP Elite 700 series family of business laptops and desktops, and the Lenovo ThinkCentre M79 mini tower desktop, the Lenovo ThinkPad E545 and E555. These are just few recent examples of many new system families that are now being released featuring AMD's high performance, power-saving processor technologies.
The HP Elite 700 series are the first products to feature AMD PRO A-Series APUs which are ideal for business, delivering long-term value commercial enterprises can depend on including a 24-month lifecycle as well as security and manageability features built on open standards.
This innovative processor technology from AMD will enable a new class of powerful, sleek and sophisticated commercial Windows® PCs that integrate seamlessly into an existing IT environment.
With impressive performance, the AMD PRO A-Series APUs with HSA features unlocks true business computing performance and delivers outstanding reliability and manageability.

AMD gives us the opportunity to offer a very distinct and different set of choices and enables customers to purchase the best systems for their business," said Loay Lawrence, commercial and marketing director at UK corporate reseller Vohkus. "With the new AMD PRO A-Series APU-based solutions available in market from major PC vendors, AMD gives customers choice and affordability to meet their specific business needs while helping the channel to win more business and gain more trust and loyalty from their end customers."
