    This laptop looks amazing. I think they are primarily trying to take on the Sony Z-series.

    I don't know which part of the article your referring to but,

    Kepler is Nvidia's new GPUs. Ivy Bridge is Intel's new CPU architecture.

    675M will not be Kepler. It's a GF114M. (I'm not going by wiki, I know that for a fact.)

    Any proof to substantiate such a claim?

    Isn't it the low-end/mid-range GPUs that would not be Kepler? Like what AMD did with their low-end/mid-range HD 6000M cards?

    I've given you some info. Now it's your turn to find out whether its real or not. That's part of the fun.

    Has there been any confirmation of Ivybridge dropping or able to run on HM65/HM67 mobile chipsets?

    Given Nvidia's numbering system, a 675m would be rather high-end for a Laptop. If it were something like a 620/625/640m or something in that range, I could see it being a re-branding.

    Also, he was the one that made the claim, therefore, the burden of proof lies on him, not me.
