Intel Haswell CPUs
Availability: June (rumored)

Rumors have pegged a June release for the first Haswell-based systems, which should bring more-powerful, more-portable Windows 8 laptops, desktops, and hybrids. The big question, though, is whether a next-gen CPU from Intel will spur consumer demand for Windows 8.
