Intel's Core2 Duo processor helps a girl enlarge her breasts

Summary: A teenage girl is awakened by her mother one morning and is surprised to find that her breasts have significantly grown. She looks at herself proudly in the mirror while her mother frets in the background. The camera then cuts to a picture of an Intel Core2 Duo processor.

LOL Quotient: 7/10. For a variety of reasons, this commercial would simply not be shown in America.

ZOMG Quotient: 9/10. It seems pretty clear that Intel is comparing the power of the two cores in its Duo processor with... well, we think you can figure it out. As we said, this commercial would never be shown in this country.

Intel's Centrino Duo platform turns a man into a werewolf and a giant talking bunny

Summary: A man and his girlfriend are having a romantic dinner and watching a cheeseball romantic comedy on her laptop. When the film cuts to a shot of a full moon, he turns into a werewolf. His girlfriend starts to freak out, and we get the Intel logo plastered on the screen. We cut back to the man, who has now transformed into a giant talking rabbit. His girlfriend continues to yell at him.

LOL Quotient: 4/10. The talking bunny-man at the end is worth a few chuckles.

ZOMG Quotient: 9/10. Intel apparently thinks it can get more customers by promising to turn them into animals.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
