    Warnings are #$%$ Everybody knows many people are waiting for Windows 8. I think 4th quarter looks attractive.

    You guys should learn the history about everytime there is a new Windows OS come out and what the affect will be for the new PC buyers and builders. I don't know about you guys but I am buying more from here.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Well I'll be getting Windows 8 but I will only pay MS $39.99 and use it to update a Dell Vostro 1500 that has an Intel Core2-Duo and Nvidia graphics from Windows XP.

      I see so need to purchase from a company that might not be in business in a few years and the Nexus 7's that my wife an I purchased recently met our need for personal portable computing (something AMD has no products to address).

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Warren East issued a warning September 4th."We are entering a period of uncertainty, and it is a period of concern". It seems it is a little more than Windows 8 although Windows 8 probably has an effect. But a slow down will put AMD in a precarious position as a result of prospect of incurring losses. Have to see what Q3 turns up?

      Have you tried Windows 8 Consumer Preview? The 'Metro' interface is totally lame. Where's the Control Panel? Where's the Shutdown icon? Metro will be the dealbreaker for Windows 8 PC's. Windows 8 will crash and burn just like Windows Vista. I plan to start a business downgrading Windows 8 PC's to Windows 7.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
