No kung fu fighting for you!

Not enough value


It looks as though Intel is hauling out that $50 upgrade service again for its low-end processors.


According to the company, the upgrade will deliver better application, video, and photo performance, along with improved "responsiveness for everyday PC activities." In benchmark testing, the Core i3-2513 delivered performance that was 11 percent faster on applications and 15 percent faster on digital-media creation, Intel said.

So, one has to pay just over a $100 to buy this processor and then later one can decide to pay a further $50 to get a maximum 15% boost in performance. Well, that's lame.
