The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Our little item of Rambus poetry seems to have inspired those of our readers with a lyrical bent to knock out some new rhyming couplets.

We quite liked this one from Rory McCormick, composed in the light of Intel's plans to cut Pentium III prices to pave the way for the Tualatin version of the chip. Tualatin's release is known among Intel watchers as T-Time:

Aah to PIII or not to PIII.
Whether it is nobler during lunch
To outrageously number crunch
And sail amidst a die shrunk silicon sea
To course the river of Chipzilla BS and be home for T
Or mount instead... a thoroughbred AMD.
