Note that prices may vary between different stores. What I have you here are those being sold at local store, Gaisano-Interpace. No word yet for other models though.
For Sandy Bridge-powered laptops, seems like we’ll start seeing units on local shelves probably starting at the end of the month or early next quarter. I was told by some local resellers that they actually had units available, but were sent back to OEM’s – probably because those were included in the recall due to the flaw discovered on the Cougar Point chipset just recently. Surely, I’ll let you know once I got new updates of its availability. Yes, I’ll always do.
