Why can't any of you see the amazing benefits of the VIA C3 set up? Forget the benchmarks, forget price/performance...I'm talking paper weights!

AMD and Intel make your paper all messy and hot, but the VIA leaves it flat, in place and just nicely warm.

Anyone disagreeing is a fanboy!

AMD Is An Anagram Of MAD, Intel Is An Anagram Of INLET, Cyrix...Ah Who Cares?

Is the Via C3 really a heavy-arse CPU?

I was thinking more that generally AMD and Intel's are encompassed in rather large towers whereas the VIAs are in sleek little micro ATX sized boxes that are smooth on the paper ;)

Paperweight, thay's a good use. They also make good competition for apple. Anyone else have a good use for a C3.

my 386 doesnt make a good paper weight...lets hope via can do what intel never could...make decent paper weights...

But i doubt via's cpu is any heavier...cause the 386 uses old school ceremic packaging
