Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:43 pm

Lenovo on Wednesday rolled out its first Advanced Micro Devices-based desktop PC, which is being targeted at small businesses.

The Lenovo 3000 J115, built on AMD’s socket AM2 platform, is powered by an Athlon 64 X2 dual-core chip and is enabled for Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Vista operating system, according to the Raleigh, N.C.-based PC maker. Starting at a list price of $599, the system can be configured with 4 Gbytes of DDR2 memory and a 250-Gbyte hard drive, and it can support a 500-Gbyte hard drive.

The move is the latest win for AMD in its effort to grab and hold onto market share against rival Intel. Previously, Lenovo didn’t offer a PC with an Athlon 64 chip in the United States.
