Sandy Bridge Roadmap is looking good.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
From what i see, 2011 notebook tenders should be Sandy Bridge and since it includes features like a built into-the-processor graphics option, could possibly mean even longer battery life, less power consumption and even less heat. 15" and larger laptops is a distinct possibility.

In the end, see what OS the school will give.

If school give Win 7 64bit and you can afford to get 8GB ram, who knows what you can do if you choose to go that path.

As for graphics, I think they will offer models with and without graphic cards. Usually the graphic card chosen is like slightly above average gaming performance but from what i see this year, kids pestering the parents for Alienware could be a common sight. Dell should try to submit laptop tenders to the schools.

*I wont be surprised if Android/Windows/Mac Touch devices will also be available during the fair so might want to have extra $$$ just in case thinking of getting one.

The $1400~$1600 price range i expect will be very competitive in schools with multiple vendors. For those like 2 vendors and Apple, prices might be different for the similar models offered to other schools. Especially if have to buy the MS Office yourself which is still kinda odd as there are schools that give MS Office together with the image. Those who can buy the Adobe educational suite for $1xx....thats a freaking good deal.

Ah..if only still a student so that can buy laptop.

Man, what are you talking about?

What schools? Why do you need a school to get Windows 7?

Why would Sandy Bridge have better battery life? Last gen already has 32nm Dual-Cores.
