so why the .1?
when a product is released, the supplier hopes to sell it. not sit on it and tell the consumer not to buy it. that's the whole point of business lol.
same thing with haswell. if there's no point of users upgrading why spend so much producing them? i swear nerds sometimes need to understand business... marketing department can only do so much.... laughingsmiley.gif


but i probably will get a haswell win8 now that i don't have a running computer... wink.gif

The same consumers who wanted a refund and class action lawsuit against bioware because you didn't like the ending of Mass Effect 3. This generation doesn't deserve to be catered to.

My motherboard just went out last night lmao and I have to make a decision of whether to replace it or make my move to intel. But with my budget right now I'd probably have to replace just the motherboard.
My pc would be close to $4500 if I didn't get cheap used parts. Check the sig. and I mighy have to put in more money into this expensive hobby.

Business ppl have to make the decision whether the costs of having a smartphone are worth it.

I think I can put some parts together and get a laptop working and access my terabyte.

Anyway, arguing with gamers and benchmarch guys is a waste of time.
I have a smartphone and use it all of the time when I'm on the road or away from my computer at work. It's a very useful tool. But there's a lot that I need to do that can't get done on a smartphone OS or an ARM processor. A smartphone is a multi-faceted communications and media consumption device, and that's a heck of a thing to have at your disposal. It can't take the place of a real computer for doing real work.

As for Windows 8.1, it's just another option that people now have. You can run it, or you can run regular Windows 8, or Windows 8 (or presumably, 8.1) with a third-party Start Menu. You can still run Windows 7, or Windows Vista, or even Windows XP or XP x64; they're all still supported for a while yet. You can run Mac OS X, if you buy Apple or know how to make a Hackintosh. You can run a gazillion different versions of Linux. Choice is good. Exercise it and stop complaining.

I don't like it.
Only the presence of start button isn't enough, desktop users need something like classic or semi-classic start menu.
