    Does anyone know when the Santa Rosa Core 2 chips will be available. I read that it will be sometime in 2007, but how soon in 2007?

    Any idea if they will be availalbe in tablets?

    I read somewhere that Santa Rosa won't be available until Q3 2007. Keep in mind that Santa Rosa is a chipset, not just a CPU. To use all that it offers, you'll need a motherboard that supports it.

    hmm, OK.

    So how long do you expect it would take for the platform to filter down to the tablet systems once it is introduced? Or is it too soon to say?

    I t can take a while between chip announcement, vendor announcement and delivery. If I was guessing, I'd think systems would appear around October next year.

    That guess and a dollar will buy you a cup of coffee. :)

    I read it was Q2 2007 (or H1 2007) for mainstream computer systems, Tablet PCs, however, will probably receive them sometime in Q3 2007 (H2 2007) or, as alphaswift mentioned, toward the 4th quarter. :)

    Centrino Pro...that certainly sounds better than Centrino...maybe I should wait ;-)

    Of course then the Centrino Xtreme will be introduced, and will be announced to come out in Q2 of 2008...so maybe I should just wait for that one instead. But that would be silly. I mean if I'm already waiting, I might as well just wait till Q3 of 2009 when the Centrino Ultimate is released. Yeah, I think that's what I'm gonna do. :-D
