    I think laptops with the new i7/i5 have landed only recently as of say a few hours.
    On the weekend of 3-4 Sep, I had configured a Dell XPS 15 for purchase with core i7-2630qm. Somehow did not.
    Even on 5 Sep, Dell India site was showing i7-2630qm and i5-2410.
    However, today (6 sep), it changed to i7-2670qm/i7-2760qm and perhaps one i7-28.... i5 was updated from 2410 to 2430.
    Configured the new system for purchase with i7-2760qm and somehow it was marginally cheaper than the earlier config of i7-2630qm. In fact, i7-2630qm has totally disappeared from Dell India.
    Not cheaper than in the US though where Dell sells for 20-25% less.
