The TechZone just got back from the 2005 AMD/Microsoft Tech Tour:
This year's Tech Tour offered a really special treat for those attending. AMD, together with Microsoft and Asus made available a bundle that could be purchased during the event for just $250.00. Included in the bundle was an Asus A8N-E motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor and a copy of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.
The full retail value of the three items is way higher than the $250.00 that AMD was charging. The bundle is designed to let attendees build an Athlon 64 demo systems and is strictly not for resale. However, if you see this combo listed on eBay, you know where it came from. Full coverage at The Tech Zone
