Cortex-A72 in a laptop

There is a small UK group called Vero Apparatus (http://wiki.vero-apparatus.com/) working on such a laptop with the A57 chip. They are likely to quickly switch to the A72. Since most laptops consume 10W to 15W or more and the processor and display are the main energy sinks, a 2W processor can double the battery endurance in many cases.
