Am I missing something but doesn't "Intel will get $3.1bn in cash and retain a 49 per cent" mean the value of McAffee is at least $6bn?

All these comments about what will happened when faster chips come out are missing the point.
All Core i7s will get 5 stars. So when a faster Core i7 comes out the rating system continues to work.
When Core i8, say, comes out, the Core i7 line will be retired and only computers with an i8 will have 5 stars, the i7 machines will no longer be on sale.
For people going into best buy, this is fine, its not aimed at nerds like us that read about clock speeds and cache sizes.
