3. Monopolies (intel) could take advantage of confusion to overcharge consumers.
1. I totally agree
2. Well that is technically true...
3. Hmm... true

Hehehe I have 2 spare monitors, and my 58 year old dad calls them computers. I tell him, "oh, they're just spare monitors, Dad." He hates being wrong. hehehe

And CPU should stay not just because everyone likes it, but because it defines the area where all of the processing is done. But I like the concept of change. It's like with me and monitors. I wanna start calling them "displays". I'm already sick of everyone calling them "screens". Normal Consumers call them "screens".

Yes but at the same time, they consist an unfortunate large number of the population and companies do (or should) care more about filling their needs with products that are attractive with their limited knowledge about the product.

I think you need to get off your computer for a bit and go outside and get some fresh air AMD+nVidia

It's true...people point at the tower and say it's the CPU. What is worse are the people who get pissed at their computer and start smacking the monitor...as if it's the monitor's fault. It's like yelling at the mailman when you get sent the wrong item... Then again most likely any problem these people have with their computers are due to their ignorance.

Understand now why people are saying that its a bad idea?
No one seemed to have given an actual explanation why other than its a bad idea and that your reasons for saying that its should be changed are false.

Case closed

Call it a rat, I call it keep the forum nice & clean. Pardon my French but half the people b**** about how "OCN is going down hill, whine, whine whine."
....and the other half b*** about how "You guys report too many posts, whine whine whine."

Grow up. If you don't think this is a serious topic then don't post. I'm not gonna let people come in and crap on a thread. Do it and see what happens.

I agree some people are screwing this site up Terribly I like it I don't want it to go away or get screwed up which is why i've left so many forums...
