Does anybody know if intel is making or planning or if that even possible to make a 6 core mobility processor just like i7 980x for desktop and the 980x is

$200 more than the 975x which is a quad. Because I'm like $400 short of buying the 920xm and so I don't want to buy it then Intel releases the 6 core

mobility chip like for $200 more...I swear I'll kill myself if that happens...so is Intel making one or not??? Thank.

Probably not.
We know the desktop Sandy Bridge is going into a 1155 socket vs the 1156 socket of the Clarkdale. More important it's going to use a different PWM power management strategy meaning the motherboards aren't compatible. Expect the laptops to mirror the desktop changes.

I'd agree with you. Buy a resonable, decent system when you're ready. Don't over spend so you'll be tempted to keep a system past 4 years.

I don't honestly think the 920XM is worth it anyway. That's one hell of a price premium for a minor speed increase and an unlocked multiplier that you may or may not get to even utilize.
