    Intel, if you want to discount your chips, do it by reducing prices in the first instance and not by bribing companies to stock only your products.

    Save the money and pass a discount on to consumers, you will lose the appeal.

    Re: News - Intel "takes strong exception" to EC ruling

    Having done such blatant bribing is one thing but then to turn around and justify it by saying the consumers weren't effected because they had the best product anyway is just ridiculous. Why do they think they have the right to make our decisions for us? It makes me sick when companies act like this.

    When companies have no regard for consumers and are only interested in their financial well being I stay away from them. I won't be buying Intel products again that's for sure, regardless of performance AMD deserve my money and Intel do not.

    Intel need to learn who it is they really work for because they have obviously forgotten that the consumers pay their wages.
