I'd be interested in a 14" version of this laptop if they offered it with the A10-5750 processor.

I doubt we will ever see any a10-5750m laptops. the a10 was released to oems in march, and only msi has used them in the gx series gaming laptops. and anandtech reviewed the a10-5750m, and found that while it was faster in some games, it was slower in others. And I assume it costs more than the trinity a10 (if the desktop versions are anything to go by).

Besides, weve seen that haswell is very energy efficient, and the graphics performance is much higher than the previous generation for the higher end 5100 models. so, amd's gpu performance lead has practically evaporated.

even if richland does get some machines, the only 14 inch laptops with the trinity chips were the toshiba l840d (now discontinued) and several hp laptops. even then, the 10 was not offered, only the a8. richland probably will be no different, even if OEMs do decide to make richland laptops.

That is true with the Iris Pro, which are found in the expensive CPU's. And looking here, all GT3 parts will be found in >$300 CPU's, which is WAY, WAY more than ... anything AMD has really.

intel's hd 4000 was only about 20% slower than the a10-4600m in gaming. the hd 4600 gpu is roughly 30% more powerful than hd 4000. and hd 4600 will be showing up in sub $200 cpus.
