Barry, I am trying ever so hard to take it like I should, but I have to admit as much as I laugh at myself for falling for this after all the “maturity” I am supposed to have developed over the years, as much I am disappointed at the fact that there is not to be a Quadcore system. Oh yes, I was really thinking how lucky I have been to hold back on getting the latest M400, and how wonderful a Quadcore would be with Vista. I was thinking about what new applications M$ would integrate with this power horse, voice recognition would be wonderful on something that powerful. You can’t begin to imagine how lucky and happy I felt. Years ago I had contemplated getting a Xeon workstation with multiple processors (I am a heavy geek and no amount of computation power is ever enough for me); and with the news you broke out I thought that my dream for multi-core systems would finally materialise. You see what you have done? You killed my dream; but alas I “felt” that Quadcore under my fingers in my mind’ eyes for the few hours that I was allowed to “experience” it, and I tell you it is one wonderful machine.
