BOOM! Nice review Dave, I've been looking for this one. Bring on the flood of ultrabooks.....looking forward to the trinity review as well. I'm guessing better graphics performance but lower cpu performance?
Now you're just mashing it!
Pretty beast cpu, can't wait for the release of laptops with it. Hopefully it doesn't take too long before i can get my hands on one because im going to need it for college and would suck if it doesn't come in time. Know any estimate on when custom boutique builders will have them ready? :D
Hard to say at this point, Drake but I think you're probably pretty close. I'll be pulling together Trinity numbers shortly though!

Inspector, I think within the next 2 - 3 weeks you'll see a fair number of system builders ready to ship with Ivy. There should be some pretty compelling solutions out there as well!
Ivy Bridge, with it's improved HD 4000 graphics, is just what Intel needs to go up against AMD (huh?)! Last month I purchased a new HP laptop with the AMD A-8 platform because of it's wonderful Radeon graphics solution (for a measly $500). I looked at the Intel powered laptops too, but in that price range I would have been stuck with HD 3000 graphics.
