[Calder] declined to say how much the re-branding effort would cost the world’s largest chip maker.

The most expensive part will be recalling all computers with the "Intel Inside" sticker so they can affix the new one. :D

I don't particularly like Intel, but I must say that "Intel Inside" is/was a very successful campaign and slogan. Why do they feel the need to change it? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Their supposed explanation doesn't make sense.

Intel has changed its focus to include entire platforms, including the microprocessor as well as other surrounding chips and chip sets,

Are these components not still "inside" the computer?

Since "leap ahead" is the new slogan, does this mean the various Intel components inside computers are going to start hopping around, or that the computers themselves will be like Mexican jumping beans?? :D

At least "[t]he company will use its new logo alongside the name of the processor and the word “inside” with its chips, such as “‘intel’ Pentium M inside”. But "leap ahead" is pretty weak I think.
