I mentioned desktop’s more than a $10 billion business for Intel. We didn’t build a next generation core product our last product for Towers. We made an experiment and we said maybe we are putting technology in to the market too fast, but let’s not build a chip for the mainstream Tower business, more than a $10 billion business.
Turns out that was a mistake. It saved us some R&D, but XP end of life and then there was no reason to buy a PC this year.
Intel feels sorry for neglecting desktop PC market
