    That's too bad. The real excitement was for the mobile chips..curious to see what it does for laptops battery life. I would love to see some good battery life competition against the macbooks.

    Apple use all of these parts too. Whatever battery life savings Haswell obtains, it'll be for the entire PC industry. The current Windows based laptop battery lives are good, no? Same parts as MacBooks.

    I'm hoping there will be more GT3 parts than GT2. Seems like GT1 is largely the same as the HD 4000?

    Here are the stats on some of mobile parts.

    I'm still curious abut how ULV's will be. I'd like to see a hybrid/convertible form factor that'll run LR well. I've eyed the Lenovo Helix, but unless the price goes down...

    Thank you.

    Looks like GT2 across the board for the quad-core Ms and Hs are the chips to get. I remember a tech demo from CES showing off GT3 parts, truly great integrated GPUs.

    Only took Intel 10 years to get here.
