Amaran untuk pembeli Computer-Laptop baru, baru-baru ini intel sudah membuat pengumuman bahawa 6-Series chipset yang digunakan bersama processor mereka yang terbaru mempunyai masalah.
Masalah ini membabitkan motherboard Computer/Laptop processor intel i3,i5 dan i7 generasi ke2 codename(Sandy bridge).Masalah adalah membabitkan Hardware bukan software serta pembaikkan adalah sampai tahap silicon fix (benda yang dalam chipset) dan agak critical untuk jangka panjang.Intel telah berhentikan pengeluaran B2 stepping chipset yang bermasalah dan akan mengeluar kan B3 stepping chipset yang telah dibaiki dalam bulan April mungkin chipset baru akan dikeluarkan.
Jadi sila jangan beli Laptop-Desktop yang pakai Motherboard Intel Sandy Bridge buat masa sekarang sehingga masalah ini dapat dibetulkan oleh Intel Corp.

Masalah yang akan berlaku pada motherboard adalah:
  1. Kehilangan connection(hubungan) dengan SATA devices (contoh Harddisk dan DVDROM -pemacu DVD ).Masalah tidak berlaku masa baru beli tapi dengan pemakain 3 tahun masalah akan berlaku .Tapi jika dengan pemakain yang hevy(berat) rasanya masalah akan berlaku dengan cepat
