    This is why we should all be hoping AMD has some success with piledriver. That is, unless you like paying more money just so you can feel smug about yourself.

    Intel's mobile CPU prices are priced as if they were gold.

    and that is the only place AMD can even come close to competing.

    Sigh even though I have an i5-2500k my next system is going to be an AMD one, CPU prices need to have competition. I hate monopolies and this doesnt bode well.

    Well now I know why there are $2000 laptops.
    On ther other hand, I checked to specs for the Ivy Bridge i3's and the 3225 is $134 with HD Graphics 4000 while the 3240 is at $138 with HD graphics 2500.
    What did I just lost here?? .1 Ghz worth more than HD graphics 4000 WTF

    So many variants. One supports virtualization, another trades that for overclocking, yet another trades that for low power consumption, and maybe another doesn't have integrated graphics. Intel's products are so ridiculously confusing especially when you get into all the variable stepping codes that their CPUs have. It's past time for them to stop creating all this segmentation. It's causing people like myself who just want to use these things all sorts of grief when it comes to motherboard, bios, and chip compatibility issues. I've built two Intel systems this year and had problems with the CPUs being incompatible due to motherboard and bios revisions. Enough is enough. I'm going back to AMD next time.
