DELL will rescue Intel

Wow! Dell PowerEdge SC430 server with a dual die Pentium D 820 CPU, 256 MB DDR2, 80GB HD, GbE, Cd-ROm, all for only $243. Yes, not $599, not $499, not $399, not $299, but $243, two-four-three.

Did Intel give Dell the CPUs for free plus some $20 bills? I hope Dell stay 100% Intel as long as it can. Dell can drive HP, Acer, Lenovo and whitebox vendors out of business for sure, out of Intel business.

I predict that Dell may acquire Intel in two years. It works like this, Intel gives Dell CPUs for free, so Dell makes a lot of profit, times a big P/E ratio, stock goes through roof, then it buys Intel in a white knight rescue effort.

Just want to say thanks for the great postings and as for the SC400 Series by Dell, it is still nothing more than four-letter word hardware.

A year ago, I finally consented to a client to buy a Dell, and bought a SC420 and eventually took a Dremel to it and turned it into a decent MS 2005 MCE system.

Most of those so-called servers wound up as cheap desktops- which they are.

Disclosure: I own AMD stock.

The article on DigiTimes is interesting, but has this offer actually come to light on Dell's web site? I don't see anything priced like this yet.

Beat down!

I found that folks take this "prediction" of Dell buying Intel far too seriously. Well, the scheme works, theoretically, like Dynagy could have bought Enron..
