why companies are manufacturing outdated laptop in the first place, full HD, 1TB HDD, 4 GB Ram, should have been the mainstream and minimum spec of any laptop at least five years back, but still in 2015 we have same config for past 10 years

what is the competition for Core i3 5th and 4th gen from AMD, what are the processor with same league from amd
and what is U, M used in processor, which one is better, does 14nm really helps ?
The competition from AMD is A10 , A8 and APU . A6 is a dual core APU .A8 , A10 are quadcore APU with different number of GPU stream processors. there are 2 suffixes from AMD i think and FX series of processors . P (eg A10-8700P)series are 17-20 watts processors optimized for battery life while fx series (fx-8800P) are performance oriented having a tdp of 35 watts.
With respect to intel the mobile segment is divided into a number of segments.
H series : performance oriented 2-4 cores with/without iris/iris-pro integrated graphics have a tdp of 35-47 Watts (eg core i7 4950HQ 6920HQ).
M and MQ : performance oriented processor M are dual core processors and MQ are quad core processors.
U : These low power optimized processors . The TDP is 17 watts and are oriented to give better life . Ultrabooks use these processors generally. these are dual core processors with lower clock speed for both cpu and gpu. (eg core i5 5010U, core i7 5060U, core i7 6500U )
Y : These extreme low power processors for 2 in 1 laptops and tablets. the tdp is 4.5 watts to 11 watts (eg core i3 4010Y for 4th gen core m7 6Y75 for 6th gen processors).
