Maybe not illegal, just immoral. It doesnt make for a very fair market.

because japan told them a few months ago that they were 'cheats' when it came to the anti-monopoly law that they have there....Intel 'said' they'd cooperate and they didn't.....sooo yeah they blatently lied to an entire countrys government as far as electronics go lol.

And contry - what exactly is 'bs' about it.

It's easily seen how it's illegal....offering rebates in return for them ONLY ordering Intel processors.....that isn't even trying to just edge out competition at all.....that's making back alley deals trying to snuff out the competition before it even gets to us end users to decide who has the best CPU....

if you intellers can't see how that's illegal, then my god you got fanboy issues.

Not as bad as having a poster of your processor hung up in your room.
