I practically built my earlier computers through reviews by Anand, and I'm sorry to see him retire from AnandTech at the ripe old age of 32. Hopefully, we'll find out soon what his position at Apple will be.
This is quite sad. I wonder if AnandTech will have the same pull now that he is gone. Fantastic pioneer though. His reviews are still the most in depth technology reviews you will find anywhere in the world!
