I'm looking to buy a new laptop where performance isn't of a large consideration provided the internals are of the current or last gen (as of 2015). As such, I'd like to go for fanless laptops that are trickling in here and there. I've heard of Intel systems, but would prefer AMD.

  • USA or what? AMD Carrizo laptops are currently only available in USA (mostly from HP). – Nemo Oct 14 '15 at 15:44
  • @Nemo Not USA, but could I've the details? Something could be managed through the gray market. – Oxwivi Oct 20 '15 at 7:45
  • I mean things like notebookcheck.net/… . They mention a very low heat; it's also easy to downclock Carrizo AFAIK. However so far there is not much on the market, let alone niche products like fanless solutions... pcworld.com/article/2870794/… – Nemo Oct 20 '15 at 8:19
  • @Nemo I still think I've seen some mentioned somewhere... but regardless, AMD APUs are "preferable" not the absolute bottom line. Speaking of fanless Intel, Surfaces come to mind. – Oxwivi Oct 20 '15 at 8:45
  • As you may or may not know, AMD CPU's tend to run pretty hot, running it fanless might just turn it into a oven. – Peter Zhu Nov 20 '15 at 2:35

The HP Stream 14 uses the A4 Micro-6400T APU, which is passively cooled. It is already discontinued, but it can still be found on some sites. It is quite limited in performance and storage, but it is the only one passive AMD laptop I have found (and I have been looking for quite a while).
