Wait for Sandy Bridge laptops or not?

Posted on Sunday, November 28 2010 @ 12:10:21 CET by

Should you buy a new laptop right now or would it be best to wait just a little bit longer to get a system based on Intel's Sandy Bridge? That's the question that CNET answered this week and the answer is definitive yes:
"They have to get smarter about how they improve performance. You have to shift where the focus on performance is. So things like Turbo Boost and integrating the graphics into the CPU (main processor) is how they do that," said Bob O'Donnell, an analyst at IDC. "Application authors can use graphics and expect that the better graphics will be there," he said.

And smarter also means intelligent designs, yielding laptops that, while running faster, run cooler. Some models now feature Intel cooling technology, which means they don't get as hot in the hot spots, typically on the bottom of system.
