I want to add that while I believe that your wish for an Ice Lake NUC will not be fulfilled, because in the past all the NUCs appeared in rumors long before their launch, I hope that maybe there will be a commercial device with Lakefield at a reasonable price, which could be used for software development.

At least for a small device like that I could always find some use, besides playing with it for AVX-512 testing.



I pondered for some time whether to buy an Ice Lake laptop, but after seeing the price for the complete line-up, I have completely abandoned that idea.


For that kind of money, I could buy a powerful mobile workstation, also from Dell (at every price point; even for $1000, instead of a lowly Ice Lake i3, you can buy a gaming Dell laptop with a 6-core i7 Coffee Lake & with NVIDIA GPU).

I believe that the other laptops that will be introduced by HP, Lenovo & Acer will be somewhat cheaper but also hugely overpriced.


I could not justify spending so much money for a laptop that is much too weak to replace any of the old laptops that I am currently using, instead of upgrading them with something appropriate.
