Acer, Gateway and Lenovo
Although it is still more than a month away, Intel's Sandy Bridge quad-core Core i7-2630QM mobile processor has already appeared in a couple of of notebooks.
The Acer Aspire 5750, an unnamed Gateway model and Lenovo's IdeaPad Y560P are just the first of many models that will eventually show up with Intel's mobile Sandy Bridge CPUs. The noted CPU works at 2GHz and should be paired up with the HM65 chipset in most cases.
Some of the notebooks are paired up with Mobility Radeon HD 6550 or HD 6570 graphics that look like a simple replacement for the HD 5500 series.
Of course, we are talking about first listings and of course, Intel will officially announce these at CES 2011.
