    • I heard their was a fire sale on them now for 99, lmao...

      From Digitimes:

      To ease the impact created by its WoA Surface tablet PC, Microsoft has been negotiating with brand vendors including Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Dell since July hoping to pacify them; however, Microsoft has not been able to provide a satisfactory solution, and HP has already decided to halt development of Windows RT tablet PCs, while Dell reportedly may also back away from the segment, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

      As HP and Dell may both halt their Windows RT tablet PC production, their processor supplier Qualcomm is expected to be seriously affected. Texas Instruments (TI) also recently lost its orders from Toshiba because of the vendor's decision to stop development of Windows RT tablet PCs. Nvidia, which is supplying its solution for Surface, may be the only chipmaker to benefit from the Windows RT tablet PC market, the sources noted.

      Although Microsoft had been trying to convince its partners that Surface is meant to increase the penetration of Windows RT and help them enlarge the Windows RT market, most brand vendors do not agree with Microsoft's assessment.

    • "Don't confuse ARM the company and ARM the ISA."

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Hard to believe anyone would fork over 200 bucks just to check email and surf the web and play a few games, but nothing else. They could already do that with their smartphones.

    • Nibbling around the edges is something Intel can handle. They are used to full front assaults.

    • So, without the "The entire wold is investing in ARM" hyperbole, what is different this time? Honestly, what company is going to take on Intel with ARM64 behind it? Perhaps IBM? Maybe? They have other RISC technologies they are pushing as well. Without a strong champion behind ARM64 how will it rip through the server market to gain market share?

      "what is different this time?" One ISA to rule them all...Perhaps. Maybe.

      Don't confuse ARM the company and ARM the ISA.

      As for ARM64, who knows? The latest firm to design it's own CPU's on the ARM 64 bit ISA is Cavium. None of (announced) firms will be targeting Intel's market directly, but will be nibbling round the edges.

    • "This implies that the entire world has weighed the decision between ARM and Intel carefully and has opted for ARM."

      Nothing for the world to decide...
      INtel has successfully kept the rest of
      the world off x86...

      Needed AMD for dual-source issues...
      and for a time, VIA for chipsets...

      "just because they are buying ARM based products today doesn't mean that they have a strong preference for ARM."

      no preference... in fact they don't care !!

      "It's going to be more of a question of "What can you do for me today?""

      Congrats on your updated view...

      "Brand name will get Intel a little traction"

      subsidizing $$ will get them more !!!!

    • >>>>entire world is investing in ARM...
      World support !!!!!!!!!!!!!
      NOt a single RISC company...

      This implies that the entire world has weighed the decision between ARM and Intel carefully and has opted for ARM. Is it really this way, or is it more likely that people buy what they want without worrying about which processor is powering it?

      With that being said, just because they are buying ARM based products today doesn't mean that they have a strong preference for ARM. And that reminds me of the time that a famous restaurant was closing in Los Angles. They had the news reporters out there and they had a man on the street interview. "Oh, this restaurant is part of our community, part of our culture, it's our heritage" was what they heard. And then the reporter asked a left field question "if you feel that way, when was the last time you ate here?" Deer in the headlights "Well, ah, it's been a few years."

      Even if there is a love affair with ARM held worldwide (which I highly doubt) it doesn't mean that consumers will continue to support it on principle alone. Its no longer a question of "What have you done for me lately?" It's going to be more of a question of "What can you do for me today?" Brand name will get Intel a little traction, but its going to be processors on the streets that will make or break their futures.

    • "I'm glad you brought up the concept of decades because the last time that RISC was on top "

      RISC, CISC... irrelevant

      "So, without the "The entire wold is investing in ARM" hyperbole, what is different this time?"

      What is different this time is that the
      entire world is investing in ARM...
      World support !!!!!!!!!!!!!
      NOt a single RISC company...

      "Without a strong champion behind ARM64 how will it rip through the server market to gain market share?"

      See above...
      The entire world behind it...

      " I don't think it's an all Intel world or an all ARM world. Both will survive. Intel cannot supply the world with all the processors it needs."

      Congrats on your updated view !!!!!!!!

      "Both Apple and Microsoft want one version of an OS. It's more likely to be X86 than ARM,"

      Entirely wishful & hopeful thinking...
      Apple designs their own ARM SOCs...
      Microsoft is porting to ARM with 'multiple' SOCs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      "But the point remains that Apple dumped RISC for it's computers."

      Apple dumped another CISC for its computers...

    • >>>INtel lock on the server market will be
      under attack from ARM64...
      The first real competition INtel has had in decades !!!

      I'm glad you brought up the concept of decades because the last time that RISC was on top they had Microsoft behind it powering NT. At that time RISC processors were 15 to 30 percent faster than Intel. Microsoft couldn't wait to get these truly superior processors on its team. NT was designed specifically for these RISC processors. And for YEARS they ran with dual platforms of NT only to fold it into XP which was X86 only.

      So, without the "The entire wold is investing in ARM" hyperbole, what is different this time? Honestly, what company is going to take on Intel with ARM64 behind it? Perhaps IBM? Maybe? They have other RISC technologies they are pushing as well. Without a strong champion behind ARM64 how will it rip through the server market to gain market share?

      I don't see the world in dogmatic points of view. I don't think it's an all Intel world or an all ARM world. Both will survive. Intel cannot supply the world with all the processors it needs. The capital expansion means that Intel sees a very bright future. I don't see Intel's margins getting pushed out of existence. I do see a huge commodity market where tablets will be commodities like PC's. For $100 to $200 a tablet you aren't going to get the best and brightest technology, but a lot of the older and slower future technology will be ARM based and "good enough." For those who demand more there will be Intel. For those who want Intel processors (sorry to disagree but consumers will pay for the Intel name for many years to come) they will be available for a higher price.

      Both Apple and Microsoft want one version of an OS. It's more likely to be X86 than ARM, but with Apple, I am not saying that being all ARM isn't out of the question. Then there is Google with Android. Can you imagine running Windows as an app on your Android device? For consumers, an Android interface along with Windows programs running native on their X86 devices may become a reality.

      There will be Microsost, Google, and Apple in the future. Microsoft is hedging it's bets with ARM, but is secure with Intel. Google doesn't believe it can win it's future exclusively with ARM. Apple is paralyzed now from the death of Steve Jobs. Nothing will change very soon (thought I would love to see a iPhone5 with Intel). But the point remains that Apple dumped RISC for it's computers. Intel is still doing well despite the poor economy. I don't see how Intel is failing.
