Specs are out
Doesn't look like too much of an upgrade. Go to www.jandr.com
and look at the upcoming emachines notebooks for the specs. Also, you can look up the 6807 on the emachines website, and modify the address to 6809 instead of 6807 to get their spec sheet.
Both sources show that it's basically a 6807 with a 3200+ chip and an 80-gig hard drive for $1649. Same Radeon 9600 graphics. They do include an obvious error, which is that the graphics are shared
with the system memory. The ATI web site, however, shows that the 9600 comes only in 3 flavors: (1) Discrete, meaning that you can associate dedicated memory to the chip, up to 128Mb, (2) 64 Mb on-chip, (3) 128Mb on-chip. Soooooo....don't think that you can have a 9600 with a lame shared memory system. I emailed emachines and jandr.com about what I assume is an error.
Anyway, still love my 6805 -- if I want to upgrade, I'll buy a new chip down the line and/or a bigger drive (I'd get the 7200rpm one, anyway). Only wish I could have found a 6807 so I could have had the DVD burner.
All the best,
