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.

Someone will point out that you can get really cheap CPUs from AMD. Sure. But for those of us willing to pay $500 for a CPU, $50 isn't much to unlock some features that up 'til now would double the price of the processor.
