I'm interested in purchasing a new laptop. I have my eye on the Toshiba P750. my budget is $1000 and the Toshiba seems to fit in very well. It comes with 6gb of ram, Nvidia GEforce graphics card, Sandy Bridge i7 processor, and harmon/kardon speakers.
Now, i know the Sandy Bridge chips will be replaced by the InteI Ivy bridge chips within the first quarter of 2012. Should i hold off for the Ivy Bridge processor running at 22mn or stick with the Sandy Bridge at 32nm? Intel claims there will be a 20% increase in speed and 50% in power savings. How much more will the Ivy Bridge comps be going for when they first come out? and is it really warranted when the Ivy Bridge chip will be apparently replaced by 2013 with the Haswell 16nm chip, and then eventually in 2014 succeeded by the Broadwell/Rockwell 12nm chip?
It seems like every time i'm going to purchase a computer something else comes out months later, i guess this seems to be the norm though in the computer world. So should i go with the Sandy Bridge in this Toshiba? and what do you think about the comp itself :
any advice, info or opinions would be appreciated.
