    Yeah I just can't bring myself to buy an HP. Between the low-res displays, gouging for upgrades, inadequate cooling, generally noisy fans, and bloatware they preinstall, they're not even on the radar for me.

    It's probably been posted and talked about ad-nausea, but I've been eyeballing this HP since it came out:

    A toss up for me as I like ASUS notebook build quality, but discreet graphics is a must for me

    Not to mention it's supposedly running an Intel? HM76 Chipset

    With Windows Phone Microsoft do not allow 'OEM enhancements' aka bloatware. About time they enforce these with Windows 8, or at least approve apps which are whitelisted for OEM usage. Some are pretty good and genuinely help, to be fair.

    For 15.6 isn't 1920x1080 too much? i was expecting this res for a 17, i expected a 15 between 768p and 1080p something like 1400x900 or 1680x1050.
    This is why I'm holding out for a matte 15" 1600x900 with A10 dual graphics. I think it will be a better match for it's capabilities. Enough 'screen estate' to be useable in 2D stuff, yet still retain pretty good DX11 game performance at medium settings. And of course be slightly smaller than a 17" 'paving slab'. That would fit my needs/desires just about perfectly.

    Yeah, it's a shame that it doesn't have dual graphics but considering how immature that has been I guess Asus decided to go with discrete graphics.
    Considering that the cheapest Asus N56 with Intel costs around 1000$, I bet this will be 100-150$ cheaper at least.

    This is by far the best notebook chassis that AMD will get. Premium design and top-notch screen. Maybe it could be more tailor made to AMD but I don't think that anyone should complain about this setup compared to the offerings of other brands.

    Asus Zenbook 13.3, Full HD IPS, running A10-4655M at $999 - best notebook ever.

    Come on Asus, you are our only hope!

    You should be careful what you wish for. Dual graphics means comparatively hot and comparatively power hungry 40 nm chips. Do you really want that in your spiffy new notebook?
    Or would you rather have new power efficient GCN chips based on 28 nm process?

    But I agree though that the chassis on that Asus looks nice. And that IPS panel looks very nice as well. Asus deserves to steal all the customers from the other vendors.

    AMD should release a APU partner GPU with each GPU/APU release, the best optimal GPU to pair with the APU, like a 28/32nm VLIW4 GPU, either with the same specs as the APU's GPU or slightly higher specs(considering the memory performance of any dedicated card will be different and probably not make it suitable for ordinary crossfire anyway) /random dream thought.

    This. The fact is that AMD also needs to improve on the implementation of their APUs.
    If for each APU release they indicated a GPU that should be partnered with each APU and optimize the drivers for those combinations as most as possible then APUs with dedicated GPUs would be really stellar.

    Untill they do that OEMs will just do whatever they want. And who can blame them.
    However, that Asus is a great improvement for AMD since their APUs are being used in something other than budget notebooks. Kudos to Asus.
    Now I am crossing my fingers for a Zenbook. I believe they will arrive eventually.
