    More Details on Ivy Bridge Models "S" and "T" Emerge:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Intel-Ivy-Bridge-CPU-LGA-1155,14106.html

    See the core i5-3470T, should be the one, 35W, 2.9ghz, looks really exiting.
    The changes won't be crazy for desktops BUT
    Ivy brigde will definitely bring significant changes to ultra notebooks, it won't double the battery life but according to intel it will be at least 40% , so the ivy bridge macbook air's battery could last 7 hours or more, plus big improvement graphic wise and a dual core 2.9!!!

    Nope, the MBA uses 17W chips not 35W, the MBP uses 35 and 45 i think
