    Bump!


    I'm in the process of getting a notebook that sports Intel's second Generation Core i5 processor. Can't wait! :D

    shiny, does it have dedicated graphics? seems most of the latest laptops with ridiculous processors waste it by only using the built in intel one (i can swithc mine on the fly :) )

    But that can't be true! Why, just last night I saw a fabulous advert at the cinema where one of those adorable penguins from Madagascar swallowed an i5 chip and did an hilarious dance, shooting laser beams out of his flippers, hilarious I say! The man said that it makes your graphics come alive, which is good because up until we have had such terrible problems with our graphics, haven't we? Anyway, what a brilliant advert, I simply cannot wait for the next hilarious CGI anthropomorphic animal film.

    looks shiny until you try to run anything on it, the thing can barely handle c&c generals on max settings while the processor is screaming along rivalling a decent gaming rig...

    Mine is a 2.67GHz Core i5, which clocks itself to 3GHz+ when needed, but has Intel HD gfx, so cannot run fuck all of any note in the graphics dept :(
