I know that manufacturers have in recent weeks released software patches to fix these things up, or are about to, but if I understood correctly, there still remains some sort of a chance of something going wrong by someone using these flaws, since they are at a hardware level. Has someone followed this? If you have, do you perhaps know if the next generation of chips will have this fixed and how much might the performance of these chips be affected? I guess we won't know until some testing is done? I was considering buying this laptop http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-envy-laptop-17t-best-value-2rx66av-1 but choosing the Performance set-up in Recommended Configurations, and even then changing some small bits in components and software. Perhaps there's something better in the same class? This just happened to be a touch-screen laptop, something I don't care much about. I only saw it some time after bumping onto this computer. Is now a time as any other when considering buying a new computer? Or is it better to wait a little?
