@rick.merritt: I hope you get to attend IDF in Sept and give us an update. The Ultrabooks or tablet notebooks (or whatever buzzword fits!) could become a savior for Intel. The popularity of a tablet platform combined with computing horsepower at no/lower additional power consumption can be a real enabler. Looks like the fabs/IDM's at the next processor nodes can all be counted with digits in one hand! MP Divakar

I wonder if the extra spending is to pave the way for 450mm wafers.

Doesn't this also mean they made some decisions about their 7 nm process?

When you have more, you spend more. Intel is using their cash to pave the way to future income in the netbook market.
