Appreciate the input guys. My current laptop cannot near handle the demand for video editing so am considering making the move to thinkpad. So the next series of the workstation from lenovo wouldn't warrant a 3-6 month wait becuase the CPU and GPU won't be significantly different.. maybe they will update to touchscreen to accomodate windows 8? Although I'm not a fan of the touchscreen on laptops. Here is the specs of a W530 I'm considering, being a newbie to Lenovo would you experienced users recommend it or wait for what Lenovo have on offer for 2013?

Haswell isn't expected to launch until the beginning of June in desktops and quad-core notebooks, but Intel is beginning to talk performance. Intel used a mobile customer reference board in a desktop chassis featuring Haswell GT3 with embedded DRAM (the fastest Haswell GPU configuration that Intel will ship) and compared it to an ASUS UX15 with on-board NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M:

The guyz'ngalz at CPU-World http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/342/Intel_Core_i7_Mobile_i7-3840QM_(PGA)_vs_Intel_Core_i7_Mobile_i7... seem to show that there is no real difference between the 3rd Gen & 4th Gen i7 - well other than a name.
Things could change before the release of the 4th Gen i7, but Intel are famous for hype.
Do you remember the xx386? Then they sold you a separate math co-processor xx186.
Then they introduced the xx387, which was allegedly a xx386 with an on-board xx186.
But for your xx387, they would still sell you a xx187. After all, the motherboard had an open socket.
Then they brought out the xx486, and so on, and on...
