You would most likely have to be technically savvy to realize the difference between AMD and Intel processors on that level.
Of course, I did find the humor in the quote.
My bios announces what I have as a processor at boot-up... So a fairly well-sighted person would have no issues with this.
However, it WOULD take a fairly sophisticated tech to actually remove the IHS without destroying the CPU, and also one with money to burn to void two warranties...
