Anyone got a link on the antitrust and monopoly kinda actions that Intel were doing? I know it's like well known throughout the computer and tech industry, but I just wanna read about it.

Glad to see that North America is finally doing something about Intel. Wonder how long the lawsuit will last..

That tears it... I'll never give Intel or even Dell any of my money. Ever.

I understand the whole rebate idea and such, but as they say in the article. In some years, these "rebates" surpassed Dell's company profits ! :O

Ahahah Cmetaphor have to be happy these day XD. It could be really nice to see the potential ( with full money reserve ) of AMD making new chip. With that lawsuit cutting the grass under intel feet Advanced Micro Device should be abble to gain the 1 years delay they have by intel and make new chip that can compete ANY intel chip. Probably at lower price range. Even if I am using intel chip right now I ever been an AMD fanboy .

I only go for performance. if Satan was making awesome chips, I would buy them from him. so whatever Intel is doing, I don't care. as long as they produce superior quality procs. I'm happy.

If there's a huge price/performance difference I'll go with the better deal. I'll only stand on principal if there isn't a big difference.

That said, I still applaud efforts by regulators to keep the playing field level even if it means I have to pay a little more for my kit.

Thats the thing; if Intel was playing fair, one could argue that AMD would have more resources to produce better chips. But like most, I look at the numbers and do what makes sense for me on that purchase.
