I'm looking to buy a new laptop, and I was interested in the A8-3500M, the MX versions would be even better. Now as I understand there is a global shortage on A6 and A8 mobile CPU's. The MX line fares even worse, with barely a handfull of models announced, let alone available.

Since I need a new laptop fairly urgently, I would like to buy a more basic version now, and upgrade it later. The question is, will the mobile Llano version ever be available in stores, either retail box or tray version?
Does anyone know of any stores currently selling the A8-3500M?

-Thanks

There are no boxed socket FS1 processors. SMS Assembly sells tray A4, A6 and A8-Series mobile CPUs, including A8-3500M, A8-3510MX and A8-3530MX:

They also sell some of these chips on eBay.

Unfortunately not much to be found in europe. And having a single CPU shipped from the US makes dell upgrades look cheap.

Guess I'll have to wait for increased availability for them to appear in the rest of the world.
