I read that title and said "NO WAY" immediately. The name of the CPU core is called the A15. It is a quad-core processor, not 15 cores. The most physical cores you'll see in a server is 16, and that's a server chip. Desktop PCs currently have the maximum of 8 cores available. Most people don't need more than a quad-core anyway. Even all my gaming PCs have quad-cores in them.
Still, 192 shaders (GPU cores/pixel pipelines/whatever) is pretty impressive for such a small device. That's more than the laptop I'm currently using has, I think, and I've even used it for gaming while my desktop was in storage for a year.

and it is only 32 bit as well, not 64 bit like your laptop probably is. Now if they can make it dual boot with windows 8.1 that would be even better. I think they should have made it with 3gig of ram instead of 2.
