Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processor  - Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processor

"To be frank, there's not really much to say because this puppy is a monster, but one that comes dripped in bling for a high price. With Intel dominating the high end it can charge precisely what it wants for its "enthusiast" Extreme Edition parts. "Enthusiast"? No. More money than sense and an ego to fill? Yes. Anyone who owns one of these and doesn't drive a Ferrari to work won't have bought one - this CPU is merely a technical demo and a marketing exercise for Intel (and its partners) to flex its muscles after AMD's lukewarm attempt at competing. This CPU, while oh-so-awesome in its technology and its performance, is an economic travesty for the consumer. It's exactly the reason why we need adequate competition, and in that respect, it's like the graphics card market, for example. It's not Intel's fault, it's simple economics - supply and demand.
