really.... how many people are going to fork out at least 600 bucks on a cpu that will be outdated soon anyway...
Well, I know one onlione store I spoke to has 1850 on order. And it wasn't Newegg or Amazon. Bases on the response on this site and a few others I read, I would say a LOT.
Obviously enough that Intel hasn't been able to keep up with demand.
Outdated is a relative term. This chip will perform and do the job I need it to do for at least 3 years. At that point, it will probably get moved to a different computer for another use.
