    Ugly seems to be the standard look for Z87s shown so far.

    Hard to get excited about Haswell other than the possibility to save me $0.30 a month on my electric bill. Anyone have the skinny on why it makes sense other than power?

Anyone have the skinny on why it makes sense other than power?This won't matter for serious gamers, but doesn't Haswell offer significantly improved integrated graphics? Might be nice for laptops.
