Anyone else reading the Anandtech Llano reviews?
They do a price comparison, but they compared a high end ($150) motherboard to an H67 low end ($100) motherboard. Then they talk about "Is it worth a $75 premium?" (counting the processor as $150, which most sources were pointing to $135...). It just seems disappointing to me that they are drawing conclusions with apples and oranges. (This is why I love SPCR over all others.)
Edit: Even Anandtech's own price in this review
is $135 for the A8-3850. So even assuming a $100 motherboard (which, I suspect, there will be even cheaper models, and they chose to use the lowest H67 mobo price), the cost difference is $10.

(Granted, this is a review for the $150 mobo, but the generalizations seem pretty bad...)
