    Damn shame this thing could have been released with some sort of mobile version of the 4670 -- same thermals, same power draw, but twice the performance.

    its not terribly powerful but compared to a normal intel chipset its godlike

    should be good for those who need a okay computer and this is good for a cheap lappy
    you can pay £1000 for a decent lappy but for that id get a new pc and HD TV

    Why aren't manufacturers using the 3200 IGP? One of the main advantage of the Puma is to switch between dedicated and Integrated without restarting for longer battery. Also the ability to hybrid crossfire for improved performance.
    better than having a coloured W,A,S,D its better to have something that can be felt.

    and in India(hyderabad atleast) there is no 3200 IGP and if you want the Zm models(1mb cache) ones of AMD there is only the SIS M700. Else its the 512cache QL-xx(2.1 GHz) with 8200 IGP.
