Hewlett Packard is considering using one of AMD's processors in a low-end notebook aimed at the enterprise market.
If HP goes ahead, it would be another boost for AMD in its battle against chip-giant Intel and a step into the enterprise market, which has so far eluded AMD.
A spokeswoman for HP said the company is currently evaluating AMD's mobile Athlon processor, codenamed Palomino, in a low-end configuration of its XE3 notebooks, which are due to be refreshed in the second or third quarter of this year.
Palomino, which is expected to run at speeds of up to 900Mhz, is due to be launched in March.
Andy Brown, senior analyst at researcher IDC, said: "AMD has done brilliantly at improving its reputation. It has taken great advantage of Intel's constant slip-ups."
"AMD started off gaining in the consumer market and slowly but surely it is having an impact in the low end of the business market. AMD also prices very aggressively," he added.
"At the end of the day people are not as concerned about who manufactured each component, as long as the performance is not affected. I think this is going to be quite a positive year for AMD."
