Arima Computer Corporation had disclosed plans to build AMD Athlon 64-based desktop replacement laptops later this year, as managed to find out. The A520-series personal computer based on AMD 64-bit chips will come later this year.

The desktop replacement Arima A520-K8 laptop will utilize Socket 754 AMD Athlon 64 processors and will be able to work with up to 1GB of DDR SDRAM memory. The powerful ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600 graphics will provide high-performance graphics with DirectX 9.0 and DVD acceleration support on 15” XGA or 16” SXGA+ display. The model 520-K8 will be equipped with 20 to 60GB HDD as well as a CD/DVD-ROM or CD-RW or a Combo-drive, a 56K modem and also with a 10/100Mb/s Ethernet controller.

Arima A520-K8 will be quite large and will measure by 350x287x40.5mm with 3.4Kg of weight. There is no information about the core-logic of the laptop at the moment.

Arima also does not indicate any details about the battery used on A520-K8, but points out that it will supply a special 120W PSU with the laptop. Obviously, the model will have no battery and will be just a computer of not a large size to replace conventional PCs.

Pricing of the Arima A520-K8 is unknown, but probably it will be just a little bit higher compared to desktop machines based on AMD 64-bit CPUs for desktops. Expect more AMD Athlon 64-based desktop replacement portable PCs to come.
