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.

Seriously, why are you arguing with me?

You keep telling me these points as if it should be new information to me yet I made the very same arguments right from the start.

The crux of the matter is there are hardware differences between the celeron and the pentium (something you've since agreed with) - thus why I cited AMD when describing a processor you could upgrade without buying new hardware.

That should have been the end of discussion, but here we still are....

As far as I can tell you are trying to argue that AMD are already doing this, Intel aren't (by trying to reverse the Celeron/Pentium example into a weak one to try and 'prove they're not the same hardware) and then trying to paint over and avoid talking about what Intel are trying to do now.

What's your point, because you'll find a comment from you at the root of this thread that kicked it off?
