I'd like to see the AMD mobile processors show up in premium devices. The big OEMs have mostly kept AMD's products in the low-end, lower spec, and poorer-quality material machines. It's time for that to change.

AMD APU are just amazing. I don't understand why their laptop counterparts are not picking up more support from OEM. There is no reason to own a 1050/1030 with an Intel CPU when AMD is offering something cheaper and better for mainstream laptops.

Yay a good reason to start seeing the real laptops have good options all around.

Cmon oem's, get with the times.

AMD doesn't even come close to the 1050 in performance.

AMD's APU is bottlenecked by the use of system RAM which operates much slower, instead of dedicated video RAM.

AMD's APU's only competes with the MX150 from nvidia. Whose laptops aren't really any more expensive than the AMD apu's. But if comparing an intel CPU with no discrete graphics, then yes, I'd get an AMD APU over the intel. You sacrifice a little IPC for more graphics.
