Now, AMD has to stretch what resources they have across chipset development, CPU development and GPU development. This is in addition to the fact that they are in a huge amount of debt and have more expenses than income. Not a good combination. ATI is long overdue on delivering an actual significant leap in GPU tech.
Intel's mobile platform is pretty successful and their desktop platform is used by everyone (ever heard of ATX?).

ATX is a form factor, not a platform. If AMD had wanted to get into entry level platforms, they would have spent much less resources simply making their own integrated GPU/chipset, than by purchasing ATI.
