ATI cards so easy to install that a monkey could do it?

AMD's tech monkey demonstrates how easy it is to install new ATI graphics cards.

Spend too much time monkeying around with the inside of your PC? Wish you had a trained primate to install the latest and greatest graphics cards? In its latest advertisement that left us agape, ATI demonstrates via Louie the primate that its cards are so easy to install in your PC that even "a monkey can do it!" Video after the jump.

The minute-long clip shows a perplexed Louie unscrewing the case of a PC, inserting an ATI Radeon graphics card, putting the PC's case back together, then installing drivers before enjoying video games and movies on the upgraded system with a look of utmost glee.

AMD does confess that training Louie took over a month (involving showing hours of videos of hardware upgrades) and that the footage for this clip was shot in one day. While most of GeekTech's readership could probably install graphics cards in their sleep, I'm sure that an ad like this one will appeal to consumers who are scared of opening their PC's case with a screwdriver.

You too can go bananas over the latest offerings from ATI Radeon as their newest DirectX 11 graphics cards start at under US$180. The question remains: next, can we get a howler monkey to install a sound card?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
