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.

I will happily agree that during the amd64 days their offering Was better and I myself bought a couple. But in terms of joe public who dont compare benchmarks, they bought whatever was in the box HP/Dell/OEM provided. Most of the time, that was intel (in the UK anyway).

I honestly cant recall an AMD advert on the TV but I can Intel's *bum bum bum buuum*

This coupled with many other factors meant that AMD was the 'one with the strange processor' the chap in PC world had to explain was different (badly)
