    From what I've seen of years past they aren't in any rush to get you your stuff. I guess they figure it's so heavily discounted you won't complain much. I saw some people a couple years ago saying they got theirs just before Christmas. It'll come eventually, but it will take some time.

    Yeah I think last year was quicker than most before from what I could tell reading it. That wasn't as good of a deal as this year's though. If I could've I would've jumped all over that.

    well im getting really annoyed. i took back a i7 to mc, and sold my other one so i could get this one, sold my DFI to get a ud5 for osx and vista and im getting mad!

    The intel retail edge program is for us residents and anyone working in a retail chain that sells intel parts.

    If you work for a company that sells intel products or other things intel deems worthy, you can get stupid sick deals every summer on their products. This year you get a x58, i7920, vista ultimate w/ a voucher for 7 ultimate for like $270 or something. Take out the board and you get the proc and windows for $130.


    Patience is a virtue.

    Wow... that's cool!

    Is it limited to one per person?
