Windows 7: Intel 'preparing' to put an end to user-replaceable CPUs

I could be wrong, but it sounds like a bone-headed move.

The Desktop PC is going to be a niche market, mostly for high knowledgeable Computer users.

If the big guys didn't make mistakes, there wouldn't be much room for the little guys to enter the field and eventually become one of the big guys. In my experience, the bigger you are the bigger your mistakes and the harder your fall. Especially when you decide that you can dictate to the universe what will and won't be permitted. When you fall, and you will, you make room for the ones who have better ideas and who are more agile.

I would consider the desktop market to already be a niche market, since many consumers never even consider buying a desktop, but instead go to the nicest looking laptop, even though it may be the worst product in the store.

Hi there
it already is -- unless you are a Gamer or someone who just likes building computers who these days actually BUYS a desktop -- Laptops maybe and as there's almost nothing you can do to a laptop mobo other than possibly change the HDD and add more RAM this whole CPU deal is not relevant at all to most users - and in fact even for "Modders and Prodders" with a CPU thrown into the equation possibly there'll be some better offers on MOBO / CPU combos.

IMO 99% of technolgy hardware updates result in CHEAPER, BETTER products so I'm not sure what all the fuss is about anyway.

Cheers

Actually most of my sales are tablets now, I can't seem to get Desktops or Laptops to sell anymore, this time last year Laptops would sale faster than I could get them in.

Also, since this would cut overall production costs, guess what in today's business world that means raising the price to watch a bigger profit comes i, not to mention that with the CPU integrated directly and not socketed in, they would hold a larger price tag on it, first to see how it is done, then to implement it overall company wide.

Guess I'm going AMD whenever I have to eventually get a new machine.

EDIT: Also, f*ck you Intel.

Some people are taking this way to seriously. First, Intel is not killing their desktop line. Second Broadwell is way off in the future release after Ivy-Bridge-E, Haswell, both of which will have desktop versions and use sockets. Not to mention we just got Sandy-Bridge-E, we will be well taken care of on the desktop side of things well beyond the release of Broadwell.

All of you are buying into this bulls* and panicing like all the doom sayers want. All you have to do is step back and analyze the situation logically and rationally to realize all of you are over reacting.

Again, we will have three current generation desktop processors well before and after the release of Broadwell. Sandy-Bridge-E, Ivy-Bridge-E, and Haswell.

I meant trimming down the choices overall. For example, I don't think we need all the various revisions of processors. Take a look at how many i3 processors there are.

Yeah, Intel doesn't nee all of the revisions that are just clock boosts. They should've skipped the 2100 and 2105 and gone straight to the 2120 and 2125, for example.
