Whole world is noisy about AMD's Fusion technology, but you offer only one model in the entry category. Why? Folks are looking for Fusion in each category, every size. Make more base models in different sizes and some fully featured premium models as well.

    I agree, it is really difficult to buy a good Llano laptop. Dell Vostro 3555 and HP Pavilion DV6z is the two available model as far as I know, but none of these perfect. Vostro does not have A8-3550MX APU, dual graphics and 1080p screen, while DV6z laptops are without backlit keyboard. The last option was the most important, so I purchased the Vostro.

    Thank you for your idea submission. Dell constantly evaluates hardware offerings, and AMD is definitely part of the consideration process.

    It is not late, Llano processors have significantly stronger GPU part than Sandy Bridge and stronger than Ivy Bridge. In CPU side I do not have performance problem since Core 2 duo ages. So give us some slim A8-3550MX laptops with DDR3-1600MHz memory!

    Hi,

    Dell and especially HP planned to have more Fusion laptops, but AMD failed to provide enough 'Llano' chips because of faulty parts.
    Fusion combines the CPU and GPU onto one part that could’ve been ideal for thin and portable notebook computers like the XPS 13. Other brand, Apple seriously looked at AMD Llano chips to power the MacBook Air, however AMD was unable to deliver enough functional parts and therefore lost the deal.
    Since that AMD has better yields, unfortunatelly it is too late...
