Cheap copy the Chinese are trying to copy intel and hope they can sell it better and cheaply which is not good and you buy one it will either spy on you or break on you. Boycott Chinese products 😊

If recyclers can Master this process then I believe that it can really help cut down ewaste in the future. This awesome. Win win for everyone. Getting a high end laptop CPU in a desktop for around $100 is okay now but the process should get cheaper in the future.

He doesn't seem to know that these are recycled in China off of old laptops and repackaged doh! There is another channel where they go through this for other chips and CPUs are no different only more profitable for the back alley recyclers.. in fact there are whole Chinese towns that specialise in this sort of thing. Half price is about about right for anything that is used second hand and of inferior quality. Now he finally works it out doh!

I was wondering why my friend's all-in-one PC was running slow and while doing some diagnostic over Teamviewer I discovered it had some garbage laptop CPU that was barely 1.3 GHz.

I wish manufacturers would bring back having desktop & laptop sockets be the same. I still recall the early 00s when I'd get a socket A Athlon XP mobile chip that ran at similar desktop XP chip speeds but lower voltage, then overclock the bejesus out of it with some aftermarket cooling. Good times!

YOU GOT SCAMMED. The recipient pays the import fees, not the seller. You should have told them to have customs bill you. Dealing with Chinese is always difficult as they are professional scammers.

Funny how these American/Canadian white kids are acting like this is the strangest thing in the world when asian kids have been doing shit like this since dawn of time. When you are a developing country with limited resources you make the best of what you got.
