We will see.
Don't forget though, they have 2 big things that hurt our chances of seeing good laptop chips. The first is that they don't measure power the way Intel does, AMD measures what the average power draw is, while Intel uses the maximum the chip will draw for their calculations. This is how the standard AMD 25 or 35 watt chip will draw tons more power then Intels 25/35 watt chips.
The second issue is that since AMD is at the low end, they have to go with manufacturers willing to skimp on quality to achieve the low price point.
