Ivy Bridge Samsung 7 shipping later this month, claims Best Buy
In what could possibly be a typo, Bestbuybusiness.com has posted an Ivy Bridge-equipped notebook for sale with an expected ship date of 1 to 2 weeks.
Although an overview and details list is not provided in the product page, the title includes the i7-3610QM CPU, which directly implies a quad-core Ivy Bridge processor. The high-end Samsung notebook may even be carrying 16GB RAM with dual HDDs for up to 2TB of storage space.
Since this appears to be an early listing as of this writing, we expect the page to be updated in the next few days, if not sooner. Even if the ship dates are incorrect, the fact that Best Buy is currently expecting Ivy Bridge notebooks and are already creating product pages for them could imply an earlier launch window for Intel's new 22nm processors.
The 17.3-inch notebook, listed as model NP700G7C-S01US, is so far set for a $1915.99 asking price.
