    Cant wait for a Trinity based customizable laptop. I hope they offer a dedicated graphics option so we can get the dual graphics crossfire action with these apus.

      We should see AMD’s Trinity start to show up in the summer, looking forward to seeing how it stacks up. I know Lenovo will be offering it in their ThinkPad Edge series, I’m sure HP will use it in a few of their Pavilion models as well.
