    so 3d laptops have different motherboard bios or enhancements on them? that's weird, i thought you just hook up a 120hz lcd and the display takes care of the rest.

    I believe that they have an altogether different motherboard. Has to do with the amount of pins that the 120hz screen uses as compared to the normal 60hz. Something like 40 pins on the one connector and 50 pins on the other.

    Yes the 3D version has a different motherboard as the 3D screen hooks up via eDP (Embedded displayport and NOT LVDS) so its not just as that easy to hook up a 3D screen :)

    ok i got it now, so they use different pins and connectors the 120hz panels, and thus the motherboard difference, and only the 2920xm and 2960xm supports XTU, for multiplier bumping

    just wondering has anybody used throttle stop or any other 3rd party software to overclock on hm67 chipsets non XM models? it existed before in the past, i believe it should today as well.

    Throttlestop still exists, but remember the non-xm models are fully locked so it won't exactly work too well. The older stuff was partially unlocked so it was a bit more OC'able.

    well damn I wish I could swap my 2820+moneys for 2860. New revisions are always awesome.

    Just for clarification for some, starting this Tuesday the 6th, we (Sager and Authorized Sager Resellers) will be shipping these new CPU's in the models.
    These new CPU's are the same prices as before. See the quote below.. :)

    That's a good question indeed. It doesn't look like they are available in Europe yet.

    I am about to buy the Clevo P180HM with an i7-2720QM. After reading this Intel announcement now I am wondering if I should wait a couple of weeks (or months?) and get a i7-2760QM for the same price :confused:

    If you can wait, wait. Otherwise, there's not much difference between the two different kinds of processors....the original Sandy Bridge and the new ones.
