Timmappa, I would never recommend buying an AMD based laptop to my enemies, let alone my friends.
I'm assuming you need this laptop for TEC and other blogging related work. For a non-CPU-intensive workload like that, I believe an Intel based CPU chip would be more efficient and a better fit on a laptop.
One of the biggest reasons for my Intel biased conclusion is the heating issues one faces with AMD. I've used a few AMD based laptops in the past and they simply overheat! The fact that laptops are extremely mobile and are usually kept on your lap while working manifolds the effect of heat generated in and around your crotch area. This maybe a minor issue and may not affect your decision to buy this laptop, however, over a period of time, this minor issue becomes a nuisance and a reason to avoid working on the laptop.
AMD chips no doubt give a better price to performance ratio on PC/laptops, but this personal experience of mine has made me avoid all their products as a personal choice. I'm sure with technology advancements, AMD must have worked on this aspect and must have improved the overheating problems their users face, but I suggest reading first hand reviews of this product before your make your buying decision.
