Wow...another 18,000 shown the door- and I can assure you they're not all middle-management. If I had a penny for every one I've read about over the last 8 years.

Well I ordered mine from amazon and got an april build, 101 series.

I called intel and at least they offered to overnight a 103 for $20 and then I'd send this one back.
