List of Haswell laptops - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Performance-wise, Haswell is not an upgrade from ivy-bridge. The biggest benefit by far is battery life both because power consumption is better but also because the die-size of the processor is smaller and allows for bigger batteries inside the case.

Don't buy until the reviews say how much better battery life is on the laptop in question. After that, GPU depending on your usage is probably next most important, followed by SSD (ignore sequential read/write, random read/write is all that matters for most everyday use). I also advise you look at the subtle differences between notebooks like keyboard and trackpad. They make a huge difference.

I am normally not a mac guy as a power enthusiast but on laptops, everyone's using the same processor, gpu, ram nowadays so it all comes down to the small details and the macbook air and macbook pro are really best-in class with the best keyboards, trackpads, and battery life (always 1-2 hours better than PC laptops). With the ability to install windows 8 now, I will probably get a macbook pro retina haswell as soon as I hear that they got the battery life to 9-10 hours. All day computing on a battery is the most important advantage of haswell for me.

If not going for Mac, I'd probably get a Zenbook Infinity Prime or a Samsung Series 7 or 9 Ultra. The current Ivy-Bridge Series 7 Ultra is probably the very best value of the ivy-bridge notebooks and if the Haswell version is that competitive in pricing, it'll be hard to say no.

Diogenes5, I think you posted on the wrong thread. This thread is to list Haswell laptops, not compare haswell to ivybridge. BTW, haswell is faster than ivybridge, so IDK where you're getting your info. Also, the important aspects of a laptop obviously depends on the user, so your advice doesn't make sense. I could give two craps about battery life. I'm looking decent CPU & GPU performance in a 10.1-11.6" package. Also, macbooks are good machines but way overpriced. Most people on this forum would never be willing to pay a 50%+ premium for those.

Looks like Toshiba is selling some haswell laptops: http://venturebeat.com/2013/06/03/toshiba-launches-haswell-based-laptops-and-desktops/

charlie310, Intel doesn't let them use their quad i7 haswell on less than 15'' for heat dissipation reasons. See the wikipedia page etc.

I'm personally also interested in the future (in a couple of years) to go to tiny laptops + external screens but it appears those reasons might restrict us to 15.

It's not that bad, I'm used to carrying a 17''.

Yes, I know. I don't think you understand. If you can see, I HAVE a desktop that will smoke a laptop quad i7 haswell. All I need is to upgrade my netbook because the CPU is a huge bottleneck. An i3-3217U is more than enough for my laptop usage, but I'm waiting for haswell to get the most bang for my buck.
