My Laptop begs to differ since with my customizations I tend to be closer to lower ends i7s, and mostly on par with i5, for a fraction of the price and far better graphics power.
Translated: I paid far less money for such an amazing machine. All of the people complaining about APUs surely haven't tested their real power using both overclocking abilities in both CPU and GPU (dedicated)
No, you're not. You're deluding yourself because you spent a chunk of money. That's normal.
Intel CPUs are way above and beyond the supposed "competing" AMD CPUs in every range. This is CPU only, mind. Of course, as soon as you get an Intel with a dedicated mobile GPU, it again blows any competing AMD chip out of the water. Anecdotal evidence aside, you only need look at the benchmarks.
