Intel On a Windows Vista or Vindows 7 disk, all versions of the operating system are present, from Starter to Ultimate, and everything in between. So, if you want too upgrade to a more capable version of Windows down the road, all you need to do is pop the Windows disk in, let Windows Anytime Upgrade do its thing, and you're done. It seems like Intel is experimenting with a similar technology... For its processors.

The nature of cpu manufacturing encourages this type of model.

This will also encourage power savings which is a good thing. It doesn't make sense to have everyone on 2.8ghz dual core cpus when most people are actually fine with a single core.
