Oops, liked instead of quote. I have the a8 processor from this generation and it is nothing to be laughed at (manages modern games fairly well) so I can't see how the a6 will be a 'super poor single core processor'

You must be confused. Benchmark for this cpu is 2575 (almost an i3)

can this laptop get any bigger
#5
6GB is so unnecessary.

not unless you plant it in the backgarden and feed it redbull
#7
This laptop is thicker than the one I bought in 1995.....

And offset keyboard? No, no, no.

Not bad apart from that though. Hot.

lol? You're the reason this place needs a dislike button.

Seems like a good price for the spec. The keyboard style and size (of the laptop itself) is inline to other 15" lapdogs, so i really don't understand what people are moaning about.

I've used the i5 version of this (same casing) and its a very nice design indeed. Heated!

What is the on-board AMD Graphics chip? Better than Intel HD or other standard chip?
#11
This isn't a true dual core cpu. Its one module with two integer units and one floating point unit. It has less performance than modern Intel pentium CPUs. Still a decent price though.

The gpu performance is similar to Intel HD 4000. The CPU is replaceable with an A10 4600m, although there is a significant cost involved in changing it, but it would increase cpu and gpu performance significantly.

Any one who says on this forum a CPU is poor for a current 2010-2012 model computer from a brand and sold by a company whose buyers are experienced has too much time on his/her hand. The computer may not be such a hot deal because of pricing but I have never heard of any poor CPU from PassMark CPU Mark 500 to 4000+. Horses for courses. a CPU is priced in the market competitively against CPU power per $. A bad workman always blame his/her tools/computers.

I can't say whether you would be able to do it, but it is possible to exchange the drives depending on how easy it is to remove the existing optical drive. Some laptops just have one screw in the base of the laptop holding in the drive.

No, it looks like it's either been pulled due to incorrect pricing or because they've taken too many orders for the stock arriving on Oct 1st.

Have AMD fixed the problems with their laptop chips?

I bought a HP laptop with an AMD chip a couple of years ago, and it has a major problem with overheating and it is not as good as Intel. I read at the time that it was a general problem that AMD had fallen behind on the smaller laptop chips.

I get the impression that now Intel are still much much better on laptops. IIt is not just power but heat, and on a laptop you do not want too much heat.

Not available anymore. Shame :(

I have an amd apu laptop (a8-4500m) and have no such issues and ive clocked a good 60-70 hours of gaming in the past couple of weeks. Amd soluti

Amd solutions are very competetive for low budgets if you want to game.

A couple of years ago I had a Sony Intel based laptop with an nVidia graphics chip. The chip died after 18 months. I got a partial refund from the retailer based on the fact a product such as this should last longer than 18 months and it was an inherant design fault that was destined to break.

Problems can happen in any system, not just AMD so don't worry too much about that. Anyway, ordered one yesterday, hope they honour this price as it looks somewhat of a misprice based on prices elsewhere :)

That was that infamous graphics chip which overheat over time and burn out. Had it in a carefully used Thinkpad T61 but it happened just before the 3 year warranty so the whole motherboard was replaced by Lenovo!
