    Lunch on intel corp for Pentium 4 performance figure heist

    intel corporation will pay you $15 if you bought a Pentium 4 based computer at the beginning of the millennium.
    They were in cahoots with HP to falsify performance figures on the chip, misrepresenting its performance capability, so there's a class action lawsuit payout.

    I stopped buying at Pentium - I have a P75 on my shelves and a couple in my office that I use as PC stands.

    I guess I'm Dennis Leary to Utisz's Bill Hicks in this instance, you gotz me this time. But one day I will be Master William to his Carlton, or Arnold to his Willis.
    You're right though, as soon as she said cabbage, I lost plateau. Might as well have been smegma.
