    Since they started putting graphics on their CPUs, they seem to have forgotten to work on improving the CPUs.

    If it's 10% more performance stock than Ivy, but the overclockability of Sandy or Lynnfield, I'll be a happy bunny. I shall hold off judgement until I know that.

    Haswell's overclocking options were made public a couple of weeks ago- basically a higher multiplier, as well as base clock options (at least for Z87 and Z85) up to 8GHz theoretical/LN2/He2. Of course, you'll have to wait until the CPUs arrive to find out what kind of numbers are actually possible on air/water.

    There will battery gains in three areas 1) Haswell 2) Haswell combined with an SSD 3) 9 cell batteries. When you buy a computer with these three features combined, it will have great battery life.

    I'm not sure why you think 9 cell batteries will give greater battery gain. It depends on the size and number of cells, not the number of cells alone.

    Cells come in different sizes, 9 small cells may not even equal the power output of one large cell. The only thing that 9 cells will have over 1 cell, is greater voltage output potential. Thats not to mention that if the 9 smaller cells are placed in parallel, they could actually equal the power output (Voltage and Amperage) of a larger cell.

  5. You#re obviously not a power user, diddling about with facebook and bejewelled will do fine with your exising CPU. Power users need all the extra speed they can get, and they need it yesterday, at lower watts.

    We have no idea as to whom or why, you are addressing.
