Origin PC upgrading pre-Ivy Bridge orders with new silicon, asking nothing in return
Sure, you may need to shop around to find a replacement for that 11-inch number Dell pulled off the shelves, but that doesn’t mean you need to miss out on a free Ivy Bridge upgrade. Origin PC tells us that it’s offering the very same silicon swap as Dell to folks who pulled the trigger on any of its laptop and desktop PCs before Intel’s big launch. If your order hasn’t shipped yet, you’re looking at an upgrade. Now if only we could find a manufacturer willing to hand out free GPU upgrades.
