Orange San Diego – If Intel inside really mean ‘fast’ – then you would blame Intel if your PC was slow ..


I saw this advertisement about Orange San Diego in many places – most recently yesterday at the London Underground.

There is a problem in the logic of this ad ..

Intel does not necessarily equate to ‘fast’ in the minds of customers.

The operative phrase being ‘In the minds of customers’

If you doubt this – think about it in another way

If your PC is slow, do you blame Intel? (since in a majority of cases, PCs have ‘Intel inside’)

Most people would not.

If anything, they attribute fast or slow to other factors – (ex Operating system, application, memory etc) but not the processor -the exception being graphics applications and savvy gamers.

But in the minds of the general public Intel and fast are not directly connected ..
