Intel, Israel, & your new microprocessor

Intel has been operating in Israel since 1974.

Located on 4 sites. Over 6,500 workers. Export sales are expected to top US$3 billion in 2009. A successful r&d team, backed by Intel’s first production line outside the States. All-in-all, a very hefty operation for the multinational.

For example, the team in Haifa had a leading role in Centrino, found in many laptops around the globe.

The same set up has developed Sandy Bridge, a leading edge microprocessor. It will be larger and more energy-efficient than its competitors. And it should be on sale in early 2011.

Intel laid the path for many other conglomerates. Today, Siemens, Microsoft, Motorola, HP are just some of the many international conglomerates with larger facilities in Israel. Whether it be in the fields of medical devices, computer services, communications or otherwise, these companies provide a benefit to people around the world.

And here’s the catch, if not the hypocrisy. In Europe, and especially in the UK, there exist pressure groups, which seek to convince people not to buy Israeli products. These same people disseminate their information via their computers and their mobile phones……..which function with loads of tech from the Holy Land.

To quote my young teenager son: “Duh!”
