Don't forget about Windows 7. It has recieved great great reviews and will spur a powerful WORLD-WIDE PC refresh cycle not seen for years. Alot of people are underestimating Intel's potential due to how 'mature' the company is...but its a different story now that Windows 7 is out. Just think about your own computer situation, aren't you going to upgrade to Windows 7? And wouldn't you want to get a new laptop to go with it? Of course! I know I can't wait to get my hands on Windows 7 and I need a new laptop to go with it. What about your company? I betcha that your company is still using Windows XP right? and your company did not upgrade to Vista because of instability issues right? So now what do you think your company will do with Windows 7 out and Office 2010 coming as well and economy turning...Perfect time for upgrade. Intel is at the heart of this coming PC refresh...BUY INTC!!!!
