    Nice Price. Probably because the third generation Ivy Bridge is scheduled for release in the next few months. I read as early as April 8 or as late as June. If you need a Sandy Bridge chip this may be the time to buy one. VR-Zone claims that the Ivy Bridge mobile chip release date was "delayed due to Intel and OEMs being overstocked with Sandy Bridge microprocessors". I read online, from a questionable source, that the new Ivy Bridge chips will be up to 60% faster than current Intel gen 2 chips. Hopefully these third generation chips have the "24fps error" fixed on the integrated video that the Sandy Bridge suffered from.

    To the guy that said too bad its not the k, you are stupid. The differences are minute, and the K has less features, but a better integrated graphics. Who the heck uses integrated graphics?
