Dell to release AMD-powered sub-$500 lappies next month

We know that it's just been one big lovefest between Dell and AMD over the last few months. Most recently, we saw Dell's new AMD-powered desktops, which pack some of that Athlon 64 X2 dual-core power; however, we've just learned that Dell is going to be shipping AMD-based laptops during the end of this month, according to DigiTimes. There will be two models to cross the Pacific: first a 15.4-inch model, expected to sell for under $500, along with a forthcoming 17-inch model in early 2007. Lenovo, you guys got any sub-$500 laptops in the pipeline that you're ready to bust out?
