Hi,

As was on the verge of buying a new Sony laptop to replace current 3 year old Sony vaio nr series (started playing up bang on 3 years after bought!) i am wondering now if i should wait for these new Intel 2nd gen processors nicknamed 'sandy bridge'

Does anybody know how soon they will become mainstream in all laptops?

Thanks

  • i know there was a delay or recall recently but really wondering when they will be in all laptops?

It would depend what you want the laptop for. The prices and availability of some components is a bit rocky at the moment because of the Japanese problems, wreaked production lines and lack of power.
