Intel's Snafu

A rather serious design flaw in Intel CPUs has been discovered and it's going to cost us all a good deal of processing performance to fix it: between five and thirty percent. Given the number of people who have older notebooks at home, this could very well trigger a lot of people to ditch the old paradigm of using a computer for the modern tablet + phone combination that seems to be catching on with students and young adults. Seeing how most people actually use their computers, this wouldn't be a bad decision, either.
