While i myself am a computer enthusiast, i want to see better quad core chips.. meaning more work under heavy load with little to no heat at peak performance.

Your Note II will hold you up for a looooooong time. 1.6GHz quad Exynos isn't something to laugh at.

Quick patent it before Apple does. You know they will patent everything.
