    Its Microsoft's way to give full free copies of Windows to OEMs now that they have all these competition from Android and Chrome OS, without having to admit that they are giving full free copies of Windows, when at the same time charge over $100 for them in retail.

    Mullins may be outdated by the time it releases, too bad.

    The ZBOX CI320 nano plus or ZBOX CI520 nano plus setup for the living room hdtv would be awesome.

    It's already used in HP Pavilion 10z, so Zotac just decided to keep the cost down by buying cheaper APUs that AMD would happily, I guess, sell with a discount. Nothing more.
