"The AMD Live! family of products and software provides a media solution to meet a range of consumer needs, from basic multimedia users to savvy audio visual enthusiasts,” says Joe Menard, corporate vice-president of AMD’s Consumer Business. “The AMD Live! solution takes digital media to an entirely new experience level.”
The AMD Live! notebook PC, powered by AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core mobile technology, packs the same powerful media center features as the popular AMD Live! desktop PC into a notebook.

Entertainment Suite, allows consumers to take their media with them.

The AMD Live! Home Cinema is a home entertainment system that consolidates audio visual devices and related remote controls into a simple, all-in-one “living room” solution. Powered by energy-efficient AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors, it enables an theater-quality media experience with high-definition video, integrated 100-watt per channel surround sound audio and Internet capability in a stylish CE form factor.
