Llano offers a sweet spot in price, performance, and graphics perfect for a budget desktop. The chip just began shipping to OEMs, built on a 32 nm process.  (Source: Hot Hardware)

While Intel's Sandy Bridge has a much more powerful CPU, Llano beats it in graphics, and likely, price. Thus AMD may see significant pickup in the budget PC market this back-to-school/holiday season, when Llano products begin shipping.  (Source: Maximum PC)
Price and strength of GPU will likely make Llano based PCs the best buy for holiday 2011

How many can they make?

I'm in Korea - where they love technology and they're cheap as hell. I have not seen a single Fusion system in retail (aside from online). It makes me wonder if they're going to have the same problem they had pre-Conroe: cannot make enough of them.

Sandy, on the other hand, seems to me to be a complete waste of time. I'm sure the CPU cores are going to be great, but it's my guess that the GPU is going to be dragging the whole system down. In other words, it would seem to be a waste of die. But... that's just me guessing. :P
