Did you ever stop to think this is a ruse to keep AMD off balance?

HAHAHAHA!!! It sounds like they're smart if you ask me, they didn't want to keep making a brand that would sink anyhow, so they ditched it early. But why does this make you hate them? And I'm sure glad I didn't buy an i7, looks like they won't be supported much longer...

Well, I guess it looks like you'll be building your brother a Core "i5" system. . .

Yea, talk about "overkill". Most apps and games rarely even fully utilize a quad core proc.

The i5 processors will be an entirely different socket. This is bull on Intel's part. They are ditching support for their better processors and just keep adding new ones in. The prices are going to raise for these parts. I'm sure my i7 will fetch a nice price down the road. But it kills the ability to upgrade every 6 months.
