To celebrate Lance Armstrong?s quest for his 7th Tour de France win this summer, Hewlett Packard has introduced a unique and powerful notebook computer featuring Lance Armstrong's signature and Lance Armstrong?s 'Livestrong' motto printed in yellow. The HP Special Edition L2000 Notebook PC comes with a free yellow Livestrong wristband, yellow stereo earbuds, and a $50 contribution to the Lance Armstrong Foundation helping it fund its public health, advocacy, research, and education initiatives for people with cancer.

The new HP L2000 laptop of course features a processor made by Discovery team sponsor AMD and offers wireless connectivity via both WIFI and Bluetooth.

The HP Special Edition L2000 notebook allows consumers to enjoy ?performance at the speed of life? with high-speed wireless, enhanced virus and firewall protection, powerful 64-bit computing with AMD Turion 64 mobile technology and extended battery life ? all in a lightweight and stylish HP design.

?In my battle with cancer, I learned that knowledge is power and attitude is everything,? said Lance Armstrong, cancer survivor, champion cyclist and founder of the LAF. ?Empowerment plays an important role in dealing with a cancer diagnosis, and technology provides a way for patients and their loved ones to take control by arming themselves with information.?

?At AMD, we are inspired by Lance?s perseverance to overcome great odds, and impressed by his ability to effectively employ the power of technology. We are excited by the opportunity to help empower the LAF and the community it serves using our technology and our established alliances with HP and Lance Armstrong,? said Henri Richard, Executive Vice President, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, AMD. ?In addition to benefits that the LAF will receive, PC buyers from all walks of life will benefit from mobile performance enabled by HP ingenuity and the power of AMD.?

?HP and AMD have come together to create a distinctive, high-performance, thin and light notebook PC,? said Mark Sanchez, vice president, North America Consumer Computing, HP. ?The introduction of the HP Special Edition L2000 Notebook PC allows consumers to support a worthy cause while they stay connected with friends and family via secure mobile computing.?

 ?More than 10 million Americans are currently living with, through and beyond cancer,? said Mitch Stoller, president and C.E.O. of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. ?The LAF recognizes efforts of HP and AMD to join the battle against cancer.?

In addition to the $50 that the Lance Armstrong Foundation will receive from each notebook, HP delivers yellow LIVESTRONG wristbands and yellow stereo ear buds with every notebook. To further support the cause, AMD and HP plan to donate notebooks for use in LAF-funded cancer survivorship centers throughout the
