Well I have no idea. Sounds like a brand of shampoo if you ask me. But here's what I stole from the internet:

Sandy Bridge is the codename for aprocessor microarchitecture developedby Intel. Targeting the 32 nm process,development began in 2005 at Intel'sIsrael Development Center in Haifa.The codename for this architecture wasrenamed from "Gesher" (which means"bridge" in Hebrew).[1] Sandy BridgeProcessors are marketed as 2ndgeneration Intel Core processors.Processors based on this architecturewere announced on January 3, 2011, andfirst released on January 9, 2011. Aninitial preview of a Sandy Bridgeprocessor, with A1 stepping at 2 GHz,was shown at the Intel Developer Forumin 2009.

Hope that helps.

Sandy Bridge is just the chipset which is built into the computer of modern Intel systems. So don't worry about that at all. Just pick the DELL you want and ignore the chipset. Nothing you need to worry yourself with.

        Dear Steve Thank you for your invitation to write to your blog. Your blog has been very useful to me since I came to know it through Andre Costa on Twitter. I am not great computer expert, but have been handling them since early 70s in Pune (India) where I was doing my post-grad studies at the University. I am a history researcher and also contribute as columnist to various dailies in Goa since past decade or so.  Computers have been my companions of research, and hence my interest in being computer-friendly! As a founder-director of research institute in Goa, affiliated to Goa University, perhaps I took a pioneer step in providing a digital catalogue of the research library in late 1970s. More on me you may find on Wikipedia by looking for Teotonio R. de Souza or at https://about.me/teodesouza Teotonio R. de Souza
