Tadpole to build Opteron notebooks

Tadpole Computer will launch its first notebooks based on Advanced Micro Devices' Opteron processor by the end of June.

The computer maker launched its first notebooks to ship with Sun's Java Desktop System at the LinuxWorld show in January.

The range, called Talin, uses Intel's Pentium 4 processor and runs the Java Desktop System on top of SuSE Linux's distribution of Linux.

Tadpole's Viper range is also based on the Java Desktop Sysyem and includes the Ultrasparc IIIi processor.

Java Desktop System includes a word processor, spreadsheet and presentation software, the Mozilla web browser, and Ximian Evolution e-mail and calendar tools.

Tadpole also sells a range of notebooks, based on Sun's Sparc processor architecture. It will sell the Opteron-based notebooks directly, and through its existing reseller network.
