Hi Loading

Maybe you could wait for W530 coming in Q2 2012, which is about 1 or 2 more months. Possibly with 3720QM, 3820QM and 3920XM CPU.

Have a nice day! :smileytongue::smileyhappy::smileyvery-happy:

Or it could be 3-6 months before actual delivery...

 

Btw, I wouldn't be suprised if Lenovo discontinued the 2960xm from the options. The newer 2860qm is almost as good and uses less power and half the price. ofcause the Extreme line is always nice, but at this point the line-up is not too impressive compared to the normal i7's

There is no telling when the next generation Intel chips will be out since Intel keeps pushing back the release. Currenty Intel is claiming that they will be released "maybe" in June. That means it will take a month or two from then before we start seeing Ivy Bridge laptops.

You might be able to find a pre-built like this one:

 

Model 42763NU

 

I realize you list your location as China, so CDW might not be an option.

I also believe the reason this CPU was pulled is because it is unlocked and the W520 does not allow you to overclock. It would just be a waste of money to get the option. The 2860qm is pretty much the same processor only without the unlocked multiplier.
