Intel has a massive flaw in their processors which has been dubbed "meltdown," and it will slow down every Intel processor made in the last decade. When we paid for our processors, we paid for not only reliability and security, but speed. This new flaw will drop us an entire generation or two back in speed capabilities, and make running some programs impossible. Therefore, it is important that Intel either offers a full reimbursement on their products, or a voucher that allows verified customers to upgrade to the next generation(when available), for free.

You can read more about this here, here, or here.

To make matters worse, Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich dumped all of his stock upon learning of the flaw. This means that he first of all protected himself before bothering to worry about his customer base. They have promised to fix this flaw and protect the customers who have been vulnerable for the last fifteen years, but it comes at the cost of speed, speed which you the customer, paid for. This mistake should not come out of our pockets, and Intel should foot the bill.
