Why is AMD concerned about i5 chips that are over a year old?  They need to set their sights higher.  It's time for them to throw down the gauntlet and introduce some real competition.

In fact, the difficulty that was Barcelona was launched 3 years ago. AMD is still very competitive against intel’s sub $300 cpus. The core i5 is still very popular among typical 15.4” $700 laptops. My brother's new Toshiba has one. (My 17.3” Toshiba has an AMD P820 :-).

How is it as a CPU?  I've seen Intel's integrated laptop graphics, and sworn to never buy a laptop without a dedicated card as a result.  Thus, I don't care about the iGPU, I want to know about the CPU.  Honestly, even if it has a mobility 5870 integrated, if it can't outperform a Core 2 Duo, I won't buy it.

Also, as far as I can tell, there is no such thing as a Core i5 M240.

I bet the M240 is a sandy bridge chip that was just recently demoed

I'm a huge AMD fan. Run all AMD based systems in my home, and laptops that I buy have to have AMD graphics in them if there's even the slightest bit of gaming going to be performed. I can't wait to see some realworld benchmarks of this!
