@Proton2: I had intended to get a Broadwell portable this year but it's looking like I might get another desktop pc at this point just so I can have dedicated 2nd crt-connectable PC that won't ever be connected to a network. After all how else are you going to mitigate a firmware based spyware waiting for legit connectivity opportunity to leak data (assuming some sort of virtually isolated/partitioned single pc setup). And given I use a CRT, I haven't found dp/dvi-d add-on dacs that can do 2048x1536 @ 85 hz. And even if there is one, it only makes sense if you really need to connect modern portable device to a high end crt.
So all that considered, instead of getting that portable Broadwell I had planned on initially, I'll look for either the new Haswells coming soon with hopefully improved thermal characteristics (perhaps allowing some units to get near 5 Ghz on air). Or the Haswell LGA 2011-3 platform and scope my mobos to ones with onboard 10 gbe. The major concerns with the consumer platform are the likely lack of TSX in the K versions, which might not be the case for the LGA 2011-3 K-models and lack of the 10 gbe connectivity + possible crowded bus issues as Intel keeps on using slow PCIe 2.x in the hub despite people wanting to attach multiple 2 GB/s SSD's in the platform estimated lifetime of 4-7 years.
