I just had an insightful twitter conversation with AMD’s Patrick Moorhead about Microsoft’s anti-Netbook / Low Cost Small Notebook PC naming strategy (LCSNPC). I asked him for his thoughts, and although they don’t reflect AMD’s official position on this whole thing, they are pretty insightful and humorous none-the-less:
HCSNP: High Cost Small Notebook PC
LCLNP: Low Cost Large Notebook PC
HCLNP: High Cost Large Notebook PC
Let’s don’t pass this info on to Microsoft and give them any other big ideas, ok? I asked Pat if AMD would be coming out with an official statement on Microsoft’s recategorization effort and he had not replied yet. I don’t expect AMD to.
