I definitely wouldn't mind a nice laptop sporting a nifty ivy bridge, but I could never EVER! replace my desktop with one. I can move windows to my left or right screen, can have music player always showing full screened why not? lol I see the convenience there, although i can't see how word processing, browsing or anything else for that matter being better than a desktop. If it is indeed as loud as your car im sorry but you most likely have a thermal issue, or never heard of a fan controller.

Dang it, Brad. I want overclocking. OVERCLOCKING BENCHMARKS. Lloyd is just sitting there with his hands on his chips and his mouth taped shut by the damn NDA.
If you even smell some o/c benchmarks before next Monday's launch, point them out, OK?
As for laptops, those are for folks that are computer user wannabes, the kiddie pool of users, cramped keyboards, screens that are too small and locked into uncomfortable to look at positions, wires sprouting all over, and always underpowered or oversized. I am an AMERICAN computer user, loud, obnoxious, overspends on tech gear, and with a computer desk the size of a table for four. Laptops are for European elitists or folks that are forced like sled dogs to travel the same worn path every day.

I too agree about the overclocking but....

I'm an all american that has built high end PC's for a better part of 15 years and hardly a "computer wannabe"! Me and the wife decided to give my last build to our 13 year old son so he could play high-end games and surf the net with relative ease on a 27" monitor. With that said, we bought a high-end laptop for our everyday needs which works out perfect. With a family and work schedule, it has become increasingly harder for all night gaming sessions and general all day/night computing. So before you "label" me, or anyone else who decided to "ditch" the desktop for a more managable laptop, think about other people's situation and needs first.

I agree I would love to see some benchmarking using overclocked Ivy Bridge processors.

However, I do believe that you don't understand the immense value of a laptop. As much as I love my i7-2600 Desktop, I can't physically bring it everywhere I go. On another note I do own a Sony Tablet which is a nice substitute if I don't wanna carry the laptop around.

Sigh, I found this link on my own but thanks for pointing it out. The good news is that IB a little faster than SB with standard clocking and I would never bother to run over 4.5GHz anyways, no matter how high (or hot) it goes. I also like the faster built in GPU as the boards will make good HTPCs when I am ready to roll them over.
We need to wait to get real chips in tester's hands before the doom 'n gloom as most of these were engineering samples (I hope).

I find little point to using my power hog of a desktop (3 screens, 2 AMD 6870s, 2600k, 4 hard drives, surround sound with 2 subwoofers) for activities such as word processing, web browsing, e-mail, and c# coding, which comprise of 95% of the time I spend on a computer. My desktop is about as quiet as my car, while my laptop is about as loud as my tablet.

I agree about overclocking, though. It took me half a year to get a 2600k to 5 GHz, and I would like to know if it is easier with Ivy due to its lower power consumption.

I LOLed because I read this on my laptop. Always keeping an eye out for leaked benchmarks and news, though -- don't worry.

I sometimes amaze myself with what pops into my head. I really have nothing against laptops and used many during my working career (don't tell folks tho, OK?) What good is a rapier wit if I cannot skewer something with it occasionally? My brother-in-law said to me "With the mouth on you and your sister, I am amazed that no one has SHOT you two yet!"
"Chew more gum" indeed.
