Yup, 3rd gen. will be priced almost same as current 2nd gen. processors. But availability is an issue. You need to wait for a month atleast for IVB to be widely available.
Hi All ,
I'm looking out to buy a new laptop which will be primarily used for surfing, watching videos, a little bit of coding and casual gaming.
4 GB RAM
2 GB Graphics card
USB 3.0 ports
i5 or i7 ( 3rd gen preferably)
price under 45K
Earlier I was planning on HP G6 2004TX, but now I read that 3rd generation processors are due... I shall wait for couple of months..
I would like to go for the 3rd gen only if its going to be cheaper or same as 2nd gen so that I can future proof my laptop somewhat..
waiting for one or two months will do.. HP would be better option or Sony ?. (just in case)
If you want 3rd gen i7 then you need to extend your budget..
Few more months meanning approx 3 months or even more ?? . Le tme know
BTW dell has launched the 3rd Generation Intel Ivy Bridge processor in the New Inspiron 14R and 15R have a look
Processor: 3rd Gen Intel® Core™ i5-3210M Processor
Starting price for Inspiron 14R - 39,9000. Inspiron 15R - 49,900.
Dell laptops are good.
Some of them had heating issues but I don't now the newer ones have it.
And they are quite durable.Far better than HP, Lenovo(not thinkpads), HCL, toshiba.
Mostly why Dell wont put a USB 3.0 port in the newer versions... thats kind of not good
Also is the price of this dell lappi - 52.5 k worth ? - Dell 5110
i5 3rd gen , 4GB RAM , 2GB ATI Radeon , 1 TB HDD
Where are the genies and gurus .. ?

yes these are the ones with the 3rd gen processors.Since the ivy bridge has just launched it will have a premium price. One positive point of the 3rd gen Intel processor is HD4000 Graphics which is having positive reviews for entry level gaming (casual gaming).
Alternatively for the current gen intel processors Asus-k53sm has decent specs.

i think will follow this under laptop queies thread and people have many similar querries..
Now you can dell inspiron with 3rd gen i7 and original windows.
i read in the other forum that 3rd gen i7 having real heating issues
It is supposed to heat less as compared to the 2nd gen.
Where did you read it?
