HP announced it has teamed with AMD to address the fast-growing small and mid-size business (SMB) mobile market with the affordable HP Compaq nx6125 Notebook PC, which incorporates AMD Turion(TM) 64 mobile technology--the company's latest 64-bit processor optimized for mobility--and advanced security features.

In addition to the HP Compaq nx6125 Notebook PC, HP introduced HP Smart Mobility Access Program, a product bundle and education program for its reseller partners, as well as the ultra-light and easy-to-use HP mp2200 digital projector series.

"Small and mid-size businesses are clearly the sweet spot within the mobile market and being untethered from the office provides a competitive advantage by enabling workers to access critical business information when and where they need it," said Kevin Gilroy, worldwide senior vice president and general manager, Small and Medium Business, HP. "By teaming with AMD, we're able to expand upon our HP Smart Office technology portfolio and continue to provide SMB customers with smart, reliable and more secure mobile technologies at very competitive prices."

According to a small business survey commissioned by HP and conducted by Harris Interactive(R) in March, 36 percent of small business owners surveyed plan to incorporate notebooks as part of their technology suite within the next year and 35 percent of small businesses surveyed think notebooks help them stay competitive with larger companies. In addition, IDC recently reported SMB notebook growth at 24 percent year over year for the first quarter of 2005.

"Working closely with HP, and through the introduction of AMD Turion 64 mobile technology, AMD is better able to serve the business notebook market than ever before," said Marty Seyer, corporate vice president and general manager, Microprocessor Solutions Sector, AMD. "Businesses demand investment protection and security. AMD is the only supplier that provides both enhanced security and 64-bit mobile technology, offering business customers worldwide a smarter IT investment."
