    There's an article last week about a retailer in Malaysia already selling the new Sandy Bridge processors and P67/H67 motherboards from Asus and Gigabyte.

    It's crime! Intel doesn't allow to sell/resell Engineering Samples.

    Actually, the original person that Intel gave the processors to are the only ones under the contract to not sell them or give them away. And even then, it is a civil issue of breaking the contract and selling something you weren't supported to, nothing illegal, which is why they can be sold on ebay. If Intel has a problem with it, they need to take it up directly with the person they gave the chips to, ebay is not in the buisness of enforcing civil contracts.

    I've seen a mod on this forum do it, calling it Extra Special. As long as both parties know what item they're dealing with, I don't see it as a big deal.

    And as I said before, it isn't even illegal, it just violates a civil contract.

    i suppose i used the term illegal loosly. i dont think it matters how much you want to specify if intel doesnt want the samples to be sold they can get all sorts of mean to the person they gave the sample too.
