Seven-time Tour de France champion and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong may be retired from competitive cycling, but his eponymous foundation continues to push public health, advocacy, research and education initiatives for people with cancer. Hewlett-Packard and chipmaker AMD, working closely with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, have developed the HP Special Edition L2000 notebook computer, which bears the Livestrong mark and a reproduction of the athlete's autograph. For each L2000 unit sold, US$50 will go to the foundation. The Windows-based notebook comes with a 14-inch display and runs AMD's Turion 64 mobile technology, which includes a 1.8-gigahertz, 64-bit processor and high-speed wireless network support. It is priced from US$899 and is available outside the United States via www.hpshopping.com.
