So I the NDA is due to be lifted soon I believe (or has it been lifted already?). I'll be updating this post with reviews as they come in over the next few weeks.

I dont think my machine is a slouch by any means, does everything i need it to, but it is getting a little old, but can probably push another 12-18 months without any issues. And that brings me to Ivy Bridge, the 22nm refresh of the just-released Sandy Bridge processors. We might see a small increase in performance, but the die shrink will bring lower power consumption and thus less heat output. sounds great to me! Personally i think ill wait for Ivy Bridge to be released, as good as sandy bridge is! Anyone else planning to do the same?
