tl;dr : is it worth to wait 3 months (including shipping) without a pc (sad face) till the new Kaby Lake comes or should i just buy the current Sky Lake?
Hello, As mentioned in the tiltle, i would like to ask a question about the Intels new generation. It is announced that it will be released on the 5th of January 2017, Which is about 2 months from now. My point is: My ANCIENT laptop is dead now, and im planning on making a new pc with the budget of almost 1000$. (the list for those who are intersted: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Doushy/saved/Vd9WZL ) As shown in the list, what i was planning to do is to buy an i5, then intel went "poof a new generation". And since that i am "pc-less" atm, it is quite hard to wait for 2 more months, and 1 more until the processor arrive from shipping (this is the estimated time for shipping to my country.) which sums up to 3 months total. its pretty much a long time, so what im asking is: it worth to wait this 3 hard months till the Kaby Lake processors, or should i just buy the Sky Lake (note that the price is gonna be the same for both generations as Intel announced.)
