No. It makes owning it less pleasurable, though, given that I bought it as
I specifically didn't want to give my money to a company making only x86
machines (we all know there are far too many of those).

Now there's one more. I agree with the analyses already posted to this
list which went "it's all about the DRM", and to be honest I want to see
the entire Intel/DRM experiment blow up in Steve's face.
