I was really expecting more from Llano and hoped for some decent 13" notebooks with good performance and long battery-life, but it looks like intel will make the race for the next round aswell.

AMD delivered a product at the same price as intels with the same battery-life, better graphics but way less CPU-performance. Average Joe still needs better CPU-performance instead of graphics tho, especially in notebooks which are not ment for gaming.

Its like gaming, CPU barely comes into it in most cases, its all about the quality of the GPU really, the CPU just needs to be fast enough, these Llano will achieve that.
A quad core Athlon should be enough for everyday office tasks don't you think, my email and office applications run as well on my netbook as they do on my gaming rig. Can't see where I would need extra CPU speed on my netbook, might speed up my finance package a bit but a better GPU will definitely allow me to do more in the web/media/game space and is something I would notice everyday.
