As long as they don't deliver this kind of power with their AllInOne-chips, why would I be interested in them for a mainstream desktop?

Actually I would put forward the propostion that it will be atleast 5/6 years before games (inparticular) properly and regularly stress out a quad core i7 920 and above.
Anyone go longer than that?

Remember AMD's current K10 architecture which is used in Phenom IIs is also an updated K8 (yes, the same K8 that launched in 2003 with the Athlon 64)

You can't call Bobcat and Bulldozer both Fusion or APU. Your confusing the readers. Bulldozer is a CPU.
Bobcat is the CPU (prob 2 Bobcat cores at first) part which is put alongside a undisclosed GPU to make up AMD's first APU (Ontario).
Llano is the third chip design which you can call a APU which is made up of improved Phenom II cores and GPU's.
