Nevertheless, a great idea with legs to walk.
Oh and the link at the end of the article needs to be fixed =)

God knows I need a gaming laptop like that.

I would love a laptop with affordable workstation graphics, please AMD answer my call!
Where is Jim'll fix it!

Hopefully with more low-power stuff like this from AMD, the ultraportable market will get bigger .. more choice for me!

your gonna buy a cheap/mid range laptop & dock it up with one of these XGPs.

I wouldnt put it past AMD to make it an exclusive feature for AMD as it would bolster & claw in sales.
but obviously its still too early in the game & this is all just speculation.
