That is quite true AMD did never really care about power so their laptop procs were crippled instead of adapted.

Ironically, AMD would later end up hurting itself with an oversupply of Llano APUs...

A double egde, that gotta hurt for AMD... Yea...

Apple had a chance to have AMD's High Tech that was actually above Intels and they quit, their users lost and we the ordinary Windows/Linux users could enjoy on the Liano(Athlon 2.0 because of its GPU made HD 3000 laughable).

Hopefully Apple will change their mind when they see Kaveri.
