    It's Ivy Bridge launch day here in England and I'm on tenterhooks for the reviews. So, what time does the NDA lift, relative to GMT?

    Looks like we have to wait for Santa Clara to wake up and make some coffee, I'm guessing 9am PST!

    considering that midnight pst passed and nothing happened, that time seems to be a good guess

    Surely you must now the time, W1zz? I'll bet you have a review or two tucked under your sleeve... ;)

    btw, I'm taking the vallium to calm my nerves in the meantime.

    Id bet he does, and as such, cannot tell anyone.

    But I do like that person's guess as well... so I can buy one today... :toast:

    +1 full previews have been all over the net for weeks.
