It's about time. AMD graphics and chipsets are not only low power consumption, but they're also damn powerful. I think "780g" is all one must say.

Show me a $500 laptop that can run 6-9 hours on a single charge while surfing the web or watching movies.

there have been other netbooks and umpc's/MIDs created with the poulsbo chipset. But what I heard is that the poulsbo chipset is a slightly downtrimmed GMA945 chipset, on a smaller die.
It has only little support,and also appears to be pretty buggy!
That's why most companies avoided the chipset.

9 hours idle time could very well be upto 4,5 hours of running a program,or 3-4hours running a 3D game.

Unless the HD3200 is a complete strain on the battery, I highly doubt you would get less than 6 hours just running programs. Most laptops under 700 do not have dedicated graphics and utilize Intel's gma 4500, which is slower and cannot decode 1080p movies. This is definitely a step up, I just wish Intel had more support for the Ion platform (who knows when or if well see it).
