"Software giant and former president of the Intel fanclub Microsoft has said that it has run Windows OS on a 1GHz ARM chip. Earlier this year Redmond announced that they would be working hard to introduce support for the increasingly popular ARM architecture.. X86 does not work well on mobile gadgets because of its high power draws and inefficient cooling. However the demonstration of Windows running on an Arm chip at the MIX Developer Conference in sunny Las Vegas, shows that Microsoft is serious about getting its software onto as many devices as possible and it does not care if it upsets Intel in the process."

if it upsets Intel then they might push the prices down cause Intel isn't the only one anymore..well the choice is hard for Desktops and laptops but people are getting more and more mobile...i hope that they don't stop focusing on Desktops chips..

I have a gaming PC and all gaming consoles and it definately doens't get you laid!
