6% CB at BoA. had to jump in just for the super low price.
I just checked BofA and it says the 6% expires on 9/9 are there different dates for different BofA Credit Cards?

For a limited time shop online at TigerDirect and earn 6% cash back. That’s an additional 2% above our standard offer of 4% cash back. This limited time offer ends 9/9/2012.

Quote from TDMVP73 View Post :
Quad-core laptops are definitely better at video decoding and encoding, and more data intensive tasks.

One notable difference is that the i5 mobile processors only have 3 MB of Cache, whereas the i7's have 6 MB of cache.

In regarding to your question about comparing mobile and desktop processors.... it's a bit hard since the processor clock-speeds don't always match up. The desktop is always going to outperform a laptop, but the margin has closed considerably.

You could compare a Desktop Intel® Core™ i7-3770 Processor to a Mobile Intel® Core™ i7-3820QM Processor or the Intel® Core™ i7-3920XM Processor Extreme Edition.

Benchmark Scores (PassMark CPU Mark):
i7-3820QM - 9,246
i7-3920XM - 9,379
i7-3770 - 10,355

Keep in mind that the i7-3770 has 8 MB Cache, and is 700 MHz faster on the low-end, 200 MHz higher on the high-end (turbo-mode) than the i7-3820QM. The i7-3920XM has the same 8 MB cache as the i7-3770, but it's still 500 MHz slower on the low-end and 100 MHz slower on the high-end.

That's truly impressive. It shows what you can do with custom cooling solutions built for a specific case.

I just ordered... now is the rebate going to fail due to order date/time?

**edit**
nm, the confirmation email says:
Order Date 09/10/2012
I should be fine.

DO you guys recommend the square trade warranty?
I don't think its worth it, it already comes with 1 year warranty. but that's just my opinion.
