I took this for a technology themed contest over on View Bug. Its amazing that this AMD Athlon 1200Mhz has 37 million transistors in it, from 1999.
Also, I cleaned the top of this with acetone before I took the shot. It looks completely clean and dust free to my eyes, but the 100L macro disagrees =)
