    Apple May Ditch Intel for CPUs in Macs, But It's Not Over to AMD

    It would be nice to see a desktop ARM based computer come out that doesn't suck. Has 2 sata ports and expendable ram. Ive played with a few ACORN risc machines they where pretty snappy.From what I can gather they cane out around the same time as the 486. Fast forward from 1995 to know...

    Windows 8 Arrives

    False. Windows Me was 5% to 25% worse than windows 98. I wrote a comparison. Even games such as Half Life ran slighlty worse on windows ME. Windows 98Se was awesome in the days. As for windows 8 its just another reason to duel boot. Run linux as the main OS and windows 7 to play games.
