It's not exactly a tech deal, but since we don't plan to run a dedicated post on Ivy Bridge's availability, we figure it's worth mentioning it as a footnote here. Newegg offers six chips (with a seventh being out of stock) ranging from $200 to $320, including the Core i5-3450, i5-3450S, i5-3550, i5-3570K, i7-3770 and i7-3770S.
