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.

It will be like getting a V12 but with only 8 cylinders working. And for 50 extra bucks you can open the trunk!.

Actually this idea is already implemented in modern cars. Things like Cruise Control and all the other fancy stuff in current cars is implemented in all cars (say of one specific model) but the customer has to pay for it to be enabled. Same applies to the engine control software by the way.
Customer don't seem to care and I don't know why this should be a problem.
