It's too bad the CPU ISN'T upgradeable! I want the option of putting a 4940MX Extreme CPU in it, either at purchase or as a future upgrade. This way the laptop can have not only a GPU power advantage to regular laptops, but the CPU as well. With the revised cooling, it ought to handle the heat of a 4940MX.

Also with the cooling design, the screen can't tilt much past 90 degrees, right?

Should have more weight loss than that. There is no need for the lead acid component at all, make it pure lithium. It should have the cold cranking amps needed (except for maybe super cold weather) and also have energy capacity to power accessories. With any luck, we can replace the lead acid battery in older cars with lithium, plug and play with hardware in the battery to work with the traditional alternator.

It's only 2.7/3.6GHZ quad core with less work done per clock cycle than Sandy Bridge+, and 35W TDP. AMD needs to grow a pair and release some 47W and 57W APUs like Intel has done so it can have more room for performance with laptops.

IPC; I thought it always though it stood for 'inter-process communication' and was always confused how that translated to single threaded performance, but now i know that it's 'instructions per clock cycle' which makes perfect sense.

IPC is the most important thing to increase, along with power efficiency.

I sure hope they bring 14nm to laptops and perhaps desktop in 2014. You can't slow down, CPU real-world performance improvements are slow enough as it is these days!

I want a 10 Skymont midrange gaming/engineering laptop in 2016!

What will the Random Read IOPS of the Intel King Crest SSD be? We know that Cherryville (Intel 520) will be 40K IOPS random read at 4K block size.

Why doesn't Intel skip 32nm lithography on the Atom for 2012, and go straight to 22nm as Ivy Bridge will be? Why is Atom 1 step behind Ivy Bridge even though the Atom die is simpler than Ivy bridge?
