    Is buying an engineering sample considered illegal?

    AkimboB.

      Yesterday I went on ebay to see if I could find some cheap processors - I normally don't use ebay - and I was amazed by the prices for the xeons. Today I was on a xeon page and scrolled down to see some weird explaination how it wasn't compatible with motherboard x while having the right socket. I looked around on the internet and found out that people aren't supposed to own those (engineering samples) processors. So now's my question: is it illegal if I buy said processor?
