Looks like Core i7 could dominate laptops the way it has desktops. We should see the chips in new machines at next week's Intel Developers Conference, but PC Pro has already tested the mid-range quad-core 1.73GHz i7-820QM, and they're impressed.
The sleek multimedia PCs can be configured with Intel's new "Lynnfield" Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The 9000 takes-over from the Studio XPS 435 with new "performance graphics options", while the 8000 has a smaller, but similarly-styled case design.
The long and short of the new Lynnfield-based Intel Core i7 and Core i5 desktop chips: Nehalem power for cheaper than ever, and all you're losing is triple-channel memory (in new i7 and i5) and hyperthreading (in i5). [Anandtech]
