Hi,

I'm looking to buy a desktop replacement. I actually bought one, but the site I bought it from had advertised the wrong resolution, so I returned it shortly after I received it. I decided it would be best to wait for IB laptops to hit the market, before buying a new one, so here I am - waiting.
I live in Norway, and it doesn't seem like IB has hit the shelves yet, be it regular or mobile. Have they started selling it in the UK?

Tomorrow most of the ivybridge gaming laptops/high end stuff comes out. Or at least the ASUS ROG series of gaming laptops. :)

So I wouldn't have to wait much longer? :D 
I'm getting pretty desperate for a new machine, as my older ones are close to dead
What is this ASUS ROG series? Do you have a link? :) 

Would the lesser machines be released first, followed by the stronger ones, or am I safe buying a new machine now?

If what I'm writing is completely illegible, tell me. I'm kind of just writing down thoughts as they appear in my head.

Already been there. Thanks for you hilarious post, though.
Still don't know what laptop he claimed was being released after visiting that site. All I understand is that it's some Republic of Gamers laptop.

There we go! Cheers man :)  You got any experiance with these ASUS computers, yourself? It looks butt ugly, but it ships with a GTX 670M which is pretty good, no? The cooling system looks promising as well..

G75Vw-DS72: http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g75vwds72-p-4325.html All of the laptops are customizeable on xoticpc.


I don't think so.. I don't like the spaceship look, but it certainly looks better than the MSI GT70!

Boom.

EDIT: I didn't realize you was in the UK.

I myself just found out Newegg had them up within the hour so I was still dazed from the excitement.


I'm in Norway, not the UK :p

Why? From what I read it's better than SB for people who don't overclock.

I'm most certainly gonna go with the ASUS G75
