I heard that FX-7600P is the best APU of the current generation for laptops.
However, the only laptop with FX-7600P APU that I saw is this one:

AMD Kaveri Laptop: AMD FX-7600P + Radeon R7

This laptop was presented in the end of May 2014 at some exchibition.
But, three month have passed and I still could not find any FX-7600P laptops!
Not only in my country, but anywhere in the world as well (despite some other laptop APUs from this generation are already available)

Please tell me, are there any news about FX-7600P APU based laptops?
Or such APUs were cancelled by AMD?

Good day!  I could tell that this is not the _first_ FX-7600P laptop that has surfaced.

I have been monitoring the situation with FX-7600P laptops for like a month. ASUS X550ZE has appeared just yesterday. 

However, at many German warehouses and other European stores, there are already 4 MSI models with FX-7600P

1) GX60-5CD81FD (0016FL-SKU2) -- about €900 -- 39.6 cm (15.6") screen, Free DOS , DVD-SuperMulti

2) GX60-5CD16H11 (0016FL-SKU1) -- about €1100 -- 39.6 cm (15.6") screen, Win 8.1 , DVD-SuperMulti

3) GX70-5CD81FD (00176L-SKU2) -- about €1000 -- 43.9 cm (17.3") screen, Free DOS , Blu-ray Writer

4) GX70-5CD8H11B (00176L-SKU1) -- about €1200 -- 43.9 cm (17.3") screen, Win 8.1 , Blu-ray Writer

Prices are approximate, and could be lower in your country if you have lower taxes.

These specifications are the same for all models:

* AMD FX 7600P APU

* AMD Radeon R9 M290X discrete GPU with 2 GB VRAM

* Full HD screen with resolution 1920x1080

* Hybrid storage: 1 TB 7200 rpm hard drive together with 128 GB solid state drive 

* WLAN 802.11n , Bluetooth 4.0 , Webcam

More technical details could be seen under this Facebook post:

According to my information, they would be selling them in 1-2 weeks if nothing changes...

P.S. If you want to see it with your own eyes, you could visit Cyberport website , type FX7600P in search bar, search and open laptops in new tab, then use Google Translate for links. Some websites have quietly removed these leaks from their online listings though

P.P.S. I am glad that MSI has decided to make a version with Free DOS, that will help to save a lot of money - €200, about 20% of total price! I have no desire to pay anything to Micro$$oft : not because I am going to pirate Windows, but because I am a Linux guy and prefer fully free software like this beautiful OS without any closed source elements - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trisquel
