AMD logoFirst it was Microsoft and now HP is griping over the shortgate of processors. We found AMD processors easy to find and there does not seem to be any shortages of them for the market.

AMD has mobile processors but so far not many machines use them. AMD has continued to design new mobile processors and we expect more sales of the AMD APU class devices which have good integrated graphics.

HP might want to make a new lineup with AMD Zen mobile processors and see if they can expand their product catalog better.

HP also said customers are printing less, too, in this digital and environmentally conscious age, though the printer-less office now seems a fantasy. HP has made some ground in the print services sector, which is how many large corporations consume the tech. We use a high volume printer mostly for photocopy use.

Depending on the retail store, there are usually lots of laptop machines for sale. HP is simply one of several competing brands. We see HP, Acer, MSI and Lenovo for sale among others. Lots of low cost machines are available, its not restricted to high end machines at all.
