I'm considering buying a new laptop and would like to seek your opinion if it is wiser to wait for santa rosa platoforms to be out next year (Q1 07?) or grab a merom now.
Are there any speculations as to how much faster a santa rosa platform would be compared to merom? (how significant)
im using it as an all-round multimedia comp, watch movies, play games decently, music etc
I haven't read up on it, but what are the main changes in santa rosa that would be interesting for consumers in terms of speed or power consumption?
does anyone know if santa rosa might be compatable with core 2 duo (merom) chipsets?
that would be sweet !
I think i got this all wrong, santa rosa is a new chipset that will allow for core 2 duo proccessors to drop into it.
I thought santa rosa was a a new proccessor that might be able to use the same chipsets as the current merom and yonah proccessors.
Still bottom line is, if you are going to wait for the next best thing you will be waiting forever. There is always going to be the next thing.
I remember when I was looking at big screen t.v.'s and I said, "Ok, this is the one I want. When it comes down in price in 6 months I am going to buy it. It is exactly what I want."
Then, 6 months later, I was like, "God, I can't get that piece of junk, I am going to wait for this one to come down in price. I am definately going to be happy with this.
You know what? I am still waiting for the new Sony with 4 million pixel resolution. BUT... when that comes out I AM GETTING IT!
