Dell still doesn’t offer a notebook with AMD’s new Fusion processor in the US, but the folks at APC Magazine report that the Dell M102z is now available in Australia with a choice of an AMC C-50 or AMD E-350 dual core chip.

Merci beaucoup, mes amis! Be sure to check the blue progress bars for the likelihood of each one of these rumors to actually occur. They look mostly accurate to us, with one exception: After last night’s revelations about Sony’s involvement with the next iPhone’s image sensor from Sony’s Sir Howard Stringer, that 50% chance of a better camera seems like it ought to be around 80 to 90%. Let us know in the comments if you think these predictions are accurate.
