Quote from: Intel
“Netbooks are for basic internet tasks, such as browsing, email, social networking, etc. While we can understand why nVidia would want to re-define the category to suit their needs, the fact of the matter is netbooks are not intended to be nor have they ever been, designed for higher end graphics or for use as gaming machines. Clearly this would also introduce additional cost to an already bare-bones platform.”

Clearly this is just jibberish, who stated that netbooks can only have crap graphics? Intel is just afraid that the nVidia ION platform will become more populair than their chipsets for netbooks, this is a low way to handle this. You should count on competition on a free market.

I for one look forward to the ION platform and I'm considering of buying something with the ION platform when it's been released.

Well, you can't say we didn't see this coming. I guess Intel thought Nvidia will just sit idle while they bash their ace, but this is not the time to be letting bucks slip trough your hands.

Intel should be happy it's Atom that Nvidia plans to use, despite the fact that it might leave them with a batch of 945GSEs on their hands. Hey, maybe they could ask Nvidia for some renaming advice, and perhaps dump it on unsuspecting public that way Cheesy

Maybe they could rebrand it?

Yeah, that's what I meant Smiley

Imagine 945GSE getting renamed to, for instance - Silverville 5E

Wanna bet it'd sell like hotcakes? Cheesy

Most probably, but Intel is revealing it's true colors as the IT-dictator once again. First forcing manufacturers to ship AMD motherboards in white boxes and now this again. Shit company tbh...
