As far as I'm aware a quad core notebook hasn't even been mentioned as yet by any manafacturer.
As for the 1066mhz fsb, no manafacturer has that mentioned on any notebook roadmap that I have seen as yet. Even though the bastards should have had them out by now they are well and truly holding back on this one.
Yes I have a computer (notebook), a i9300. It should see me through for another 6 months till a DX10 DELL notebook hits retail. My logic has matured after years of following the desktop hardware upgrade cycle that see's a product refresh every 4/6 months. Which can equate to a constant shelling out of $$$ if you want to chase the latest and greatest.
I basically want a DX10 notebook part with the Santa Rosa chipset and G80...........I can wait 6 months, would rather save my $$$$ till I can get it in 6 months than blow them now an XPS only to know that I jumped the gun prematurely.
