SANTA ANA, Calif. — Mobile AMD Athlon(TM) 64 Processor Delivers Security, 64-Bit Computing Capability in the Newest Member of Unique Dual-Function Notebook Series

Averatec, Inc., an emerging leader in innovative mobile computing products, today announced an extension of its 6200 Series multimedia notebook PCs. The Averatec 6240 is equipped with the Mobile AMD Athlon(TM) 64 processor 3000+ for thin and light notebooks, a high-performance processor, which offers simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing capabilities plus Enhanced Virus Protection enabled by Windows(R) XP Service Pack 2.

Like the other members in the series, the AV6240 combines standalone DVD player functionality with a fully equipped multimedia notebook.
