If Haswell Mobile has been out for months, where are the laptops?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at notebooks to potentially buy in the future, but heard a few month ago that Intel had a new line of processors coming out soon, so I waited. And I waited. And I continue to wait. I mean, sure, you can find a few of $1500+ Haswell laptops out there, but if the product line has been out for a while, where are the affordable laptops that feature them? All I see are 3000 series chips from nearly every manufacturer. When will Haswell mobile overtake ivybridge mobile as the default processor generation in notebooks?

Meh, I've seen several Haswell-based notebooks in Best Buy adverts. Also, one easy way to tell if a notebook has a Haswell chip is the type of "Intel Core" logo it uses.

Ivy Bridge "Intel Core" logo:

Haswell "Intel Core" logo:

Perhaps check out the y410p/510p? http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y-series/

I just picked up my y410p with the 4700mq+GT750m for a bit over $800... and I believe Americans get an even better deal since they have access to the Barnes and Noble discount.
