    Should be mid Feb~March and only the 2630QM will be available.


    Just a blury picture of G73SW took with my cell phone, both G73SW and G53SW look identical to the G73JW and G53JW:

    Owh man,this is gonna be so costly to get a 2720QM..
    Why $399 when the difference of price between 2720 and 2630 is only less than $50?

    As we know from producer-to-consumer chain, the middle man (retailers) get the max profit, hence $50 from producer is, $399 to a consumer :(

    Ken,
    1. What processor in the current G53 lineup does the 2630 matchup against. 2. Any idea when comparison tests will be run?
    3. Will they be against the current versus the new
    4. Any mention of any other changes to the G53 or just processor?
    5. How about pricing?

    Looking forward to getting this in a few weeks.
    Thanks, Tim

    It performs as-good-as and even better than the i7-940 XM

    Here is a review of Sandy Bridge processors (with another laptop) Review Intel Sandy Bridge Quad-Core processors - Notebookcheck.net Reviews

    This is Notebookcheck's verdict : "We saw repeatedly that the i7-2630QM processor, i.e. the entry-level of the new quad core family, can outperform the hitherto strongest chip, the i7-940XM in virtually all tests. This impressively points out the success of the new CPU architecture, which largely exceeds the impact of simply higher clock rates."

    I have to purchase a replacement for G51VX-A1 and am waiting for the SW series to be released rather than picking up a JW. Also, you can take a look at Mobile Processors - Benchmarklist - Notebookcheck.net Tech to compare the cpus.

    Cheers

    Really excited about the new sandy bridge G73s, but can someone who owns it help me out with this question?

    I really like gaming on the coach (some simple civ 5 with the touchpad). Is the G73 just to big for using on the lap? Do i need to restrain my greed and go for the G53?

    Also, how do you guys think the cooling will hold up with the new SBs? It draws a lot of power according to tests. I have had enough of fried Dell XPSs in my lifetime.

    I'm expecting a lot of hardware and software problems from the first gen sb.cpu using notebooks.
    They were pushed out on the door without too much work put in them.
    Just take whatever they can from prev. gen computer and sit new cpu in them with as less work as possible.

    And LOL what is the point of having a cpu with integrated gpu when the notebooks can't even use it ... guess they cut the time out that it takes to implement it :p

    Pushing mid end gpu in 'high' end gaming notebooks .. they cut back a bit on redesign the cooling parts so they can't put any better in them without the case melting ? :p

    Will take at least half a year until they can put out a 'new' notebook that actually worth to buy.
