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.

If they are honest about what is inside the computer and what you have access to then it is not a problem. The problem is the consumer will have a hard time comparing computers at time of purchase if each computer has multiple specifications (what is currently enabled and what potential it has). Marketing departments will advertise the machine with the maximum specs whether they are enabled or not. That is just the way it works.
