    A better idea would be to have a AMD APU in the tablet and a AMD graphics card in the Keyboard/Add on part, when they are joined it does some crossfire wizardry increasing the graphics capability.

    Should it be any heavier than an equivalent Intel-powered one? Sure, they'll not be able to match the weight savings you can get from an ARM device, but I can think of a lot of folks who'd happily accept a heavier device if they got laptop+ performance.

    My concern would be about battery life though - no point in having a fancy tablet if you're only going to get two-three hours out of it.

    I definitely like this idea.

    I wonder if there's more than one "power" level to the hybrid configuration - so does the performance ramp up if you slip your tablet into a battery-powered dock, and then ramps up again if that dock then goes onto mains power?

    I like this idea of AMD's quite a lot - don't think it'l replace either my existing tablets or my gaming PC, but it could form the basis of a pretty solid device to sit in between those two - maybe even comparable to current "gaming" laptops...

    Yes, or a full discrete class HD Radeon Mobile GPU, something like 7870M or even 7970M
