Think back to 2001. Do you remember what kind of computer you had? Dell? Gateway? HP? More specifically, do you remember what kind of CPU it used? If you had a Pentium 4 processor inside, Intel could have some cash coming your way.
Before you get too excited, however, you should know it's only $15.
Let's take a trip down memory lane, all the way back to the year 2000. It seems like such a short time ago, but it's already been almost 15 years! Back in November 2000, Intel released a brand new Pentium CPU chip: the Pentium 4. It was the last single-core Pentium chip. After the Pentium, Intel began releasing dual-core Pentiums. Check out this old Pentium 4 demo video:
The problem was the Pentium 4 wasn't as good as Intel said it was, and it wasn't as good as AMD's top-of-the-line competitor. So Intel allegedly fudged its benchmark testing numbers to claim it was faster and more powerful than it actually was.
