Good. CPU boxes are ridiculous in size. I like packaging that focuses on protecting the product instead of the unboxing experience. Marketing materials on boxes are rarely useful too because I've already made up my mind by the time I see the product box.

Great! Makes perfect sense. I can understand a more beefier packaging for heavier items, such as GPUs, PSUs, etc, but for something that is so small and lightweight as a CPU, bulkier packaging isn't necessary. More earth friendly packaging is something all companies should get on board with.

Properly designed blister packs are great at protecting stuff and are cheap to make. I doubt people would be happy if CPUs and similar items shipped in blister packs though since opening them is usually a destructive, often frustrating and sometimes bloody process.
