To tell you the truth, these dumbass companies aren't going to care if they get a significant decrease in processing speed.
Processing speed doesn't sell. a PC that you can fit in your purse does.
This makes me worry about the enthusiast market just a bit.
The speed game is over anyway (for most users). I think tablets/convertibles/AIOs will dominate in the future, hardcore gamers and power users will be regulated to workstations. Pretty much like today but with way less standard desktop setups (which are totally not needed for most people, and people are annoyed with them). Whenever people ask me nowadays what to buy I tell them either laptops or AIOs.
