The intel computer processor manufacturer announced that it intends to move away entirely from labelling its computer processors with hertz. Insted Intel will place its processors in one of three catagories, budget, midrange, and high end. Is this a good thing or a bad thing for consumers.

While comparisons between different manufacturer's chips is somewhat arbitrary and depends on the benchmarks used, it nevertheless is at least a rough guide. Not publishing processor speeds leaves the average computer user/buyer at a disadvantage, it seems to me.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I did not hear about that. Looks like intel wants out of the pc's....

By not publishing the CPU speed it will hurt sells. Who cares what category there in we can tell by the price of the system if its in our budget.

It also could make some feel bad in a way. By saying I can't afford a "high end" cpu it might make people feel bad.

Saying I got a low end CPU sounds like you got trash to the other person in a way.

Lets watch this play out.
