    I'm not an expert...
    But as it would be released with an i5 (even as an option...) it would be at least June, when the i5's are introduced.

    So I'm afraid that it won't be within 14 days, but that's just what I think... Could be wrong (hope so:p)

    Very true, lets hope they release it as quad core only for a while (possible) or release it along with a Sandy Bridge dual core variant (which probably wont happen) or they will wait until both are available (most likely).

    XPS is only available with i5 & i7. These have been released already.

    So, I don't think it will take that much time. But as Dell is not disclosing any information, it can take time. As if we see XPS 13 ultrabook, XPS 15z etc, these were available for more than a month before the release date.

    So, lets see when it will come.

    The only "issue" I'm aware of from reading online articles is that these chips tend to run a bit warmer than the Sandy Bridge series chips, more noticeable when overclocking them, though...

    I've not read the early reviews yet but I'm really surprised they run warmer than Sandy Bridge! I would have thought they would would run cooler with the lower power draw etc. Interesting.
