The new Intel Pentium 4; updates on the fight against spam

Whatcha got under the hood of your desktop? If it's the latest from Intel, it's a 3GHz Pentium 4 processor. Not only does it have a faster clock speed, but its hyperthreading feature also handles heavy-duty programs and multiple open applications better. The drawback is that hyperthreading really only reaches its potential when used with the Windows XP operating system and optimized software. Businesses using other systems won't find this special feature as attractive.
The chip's high performance is great for users who can't get enough fuel for their hungry graphics, video or database software. Other entrepreneurs are likely to pass on the hefty price tags these desktops carry (certain fully stocked Dell models with lots of memory and storage top the $2,000 and even $3,000 marks). The bottom line: The new 3GHz Intel Pentium 4 will suit high-end users with room in their budgets and the need for an upgrade.
