At what resolution were the playable frame-rates rendered?
But regardless, I believe these will impact the laptop market most of all. It's amazing how many nice laptops have a "powerful" Intel Core i5/i7, and have no discreet graphics chip alongside them (either due to heat or price). While these APUs will still likely be behind Nehalem in CPU performance, let's be honest in that for >80% of potential computer purchasers, the performance a Phenom II offers is more than sufficient!
In desktop land, if you say buy a Sandy Bridge prebuilt and later decide you wanna do some gaming, then go buy yourself a PCIe graphics card and install it. No problem. However, in laptop land, if you don't buy your laptop with gaming in mind from the get-go, you're screwed, and have to buy a new one. The Llano chip helps to rectify such problems.
