You must have gotten that reading the TIMES. (ol' political satire).
*golf clap*

If Intel cuts their prices for 2008, then AMD will be free. I'm being serious.

Erm... I hope the UK will abandon the rip-off practice and perhaps for once make the processors available for decent prices to people. Otherwise it's just pointless. I mean, Q6600 is still over $300 here.

But hey, at least good news for US people.
