Ivy Bridge coming Monday...
- 100% improvement in performance in terms of onboard graphics
- 4-13% improvement in CPU
- 20% improvement in power consumption
- few other tidbits like builtin USB 3.0 support
This is really going to be a modest upgrade to the Sandy Bridge processor. The onboard graphics is impressive, but its not as good as a dedicated GPU which most laptops come with nowadays.
In terms of battery life, this will be a great upgrade. However, if you just sit at home or plugged in at Starbucks all the time then you wont notice the difference.
