Default dell to buy amd?

Completely impossible. Even says in the article "It's a far- fetched possibility." - which means its BS.
AMD is doing just fine, their GPUs are thriving in the midrange and the Bobcat-based netbooks and systems that had been released recently have been well-received and vastly outperform Intel's Atom-based equivalents. This article has to be a sham

No, things really aren't going fine at AMD.

They currently has a HUGE upper-management issue but that doesn't equate a sale to Dell. Especially considering Dell has very, very little cash on hand.

AMD for sale can't be bad, if a company with bigger found buy them they will be able to put a lot in research which can only be good for the AMD chip. Maybe IBM would be a good owner.

Even if AMD decided to sell instead of toughing it out, I really don't see Dell being the one to buy them. Still, the chance of AMD selling instead of trying to fix their company? Maybe they'll sell a very small portion to free up cash to focus on more profitable areas?

I doubt AMD will sell. they've hit a bump getting on the right track, but once their plans come to fruition, they'll be doing better, and then they can finally start in the mobile sector..

Yeah I don't think this is going to happen... But if somehow it does I will never buy amd again and probably sell my current amd based laptop.
