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.

AMD could use the added market share


The quickest way this happens is if Apple dumps Intel as a primary CPU provider for AMD with the bulldozer line coming up and makes Intel only for custom build orders.

The visibility would make this add-on charge a risk for Intel whose thoroughly enjoyed Apple's branding w/ Intel inside.
