My System Specs

I don't understand the big "military grade" push with MSI and ASUS these days... What are they trying to say? I'll bet my bottom dollar these "military grade" boards aren't in a single, government owned, military PC. And what exactly IS military grade? Can they stop bullets? Do they have night vision? Can it randomly take over a small country in a mistaken search for WMD's?

In short... that term is getting old. Marketing flashy, gaudy products with words like 'Military' thrown in to make it sound tougher, is a tactic for the masses. It only ends up insulting those smart enough to see it. Unfortunately, this marketing usually works, as the ignorant consumers far outweigh the intelligent. So we're doomed to see this get worse...
