ok, up for discussion for the PC Users (I read more on how this works with mac users) Is what do you prefer? AMD or Intel. Please state below why you own/prefer a specific CPU machine.
which CPU would you /did you like in the new Intel macs? Did you want an AMD? or is the intel fine?
I personally want AMD, as they have a more outlined approch and have achieved 64-bit CPU on user level, as well have been able to make their CPU's faster than the Intel's newest CPU's speed (AMD's can crunch more data than an intel faster, and intel is always a step away on their technology)
also, AMD's are cheaper for what they are produced. They also are overclockable in no other way that an intel can be (I have my Machine clocked from 2500+ to 2800+ and the FSB has been clocked from 333MHz to 450Mhz) and it beats the pants off my other friend's newer intel's that they got.
I have always rooted for the little man (being AMD) and intel seems to be taking advantage of their market share by telling companies like Dell, that if they go to AMD, Intel will pull ALL CPU's from Dell's Line. So, in a way, they are pulling a Microsoft.
I own my AMD machine as it seems to be faster for me than ANY intel that I use. I prefer that I can make the system as Fast(or slow) as I want so that I can controll the environment. This means if I need more horsepower, I just go into the BIOS and ramp it up a bit. And If I don't need the power, I will pretty much ramp it down to 2200+ with an FSB ofr 233 (thank got my Board allows me to do that). So I can save more power than an intel system. It makes me happy that I can control what I use and how I use it.
