Even though this is a tad late, I came across a decent list of upcoming Sandy Bridge mobile CPU's that are expected to be released in early 2011. The desktop CPU's get the brunt of the attention, so I figured I'd highlight the latest mobile chips. Essentially, the one major difference between the current line of mobile "core i" chips and the upcoming Sandy Bridge mobile chips is the fact that they will be manufactured on the 32nm process instead of the 45nm process. In turn, as you will see, this allows for higher clock speeds due to less heat. I think that these chips will bring a lot of increased performance to the table, not to mention the potential for better battery life. I'd have a look at AMD's upcoming Bulldozer based mobile CPU's, but they have been pretty tight lipped about it. Here is a sampling:
-Enthusiast:Core i7 2920XM: 4 cores/8 threads, 2.5Ghz base clock/3.5Ghz turbo clock, 8MB of L3, and a 55 watt TDP. -Mid Range:Core i5 2520M: 2 cores/4 threads, 2.5Ghz base clock/3.2Ghz turbo clock, 3MB of L3, and a 35 watt TDP.
Of course, it remains to be seen if these new chips will out perform their current counterparts until they are actually released and we see some benchmarks.

Thanks for the link.
According to a preview i read in anandtech about upcoming Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs,they are faster but its not much(Its like 20-30%).I hope the same thing happens for laptop CPUs along with more battery life.
