That would be neat: having AMD processors in Dell computers. One major problem I have with Dell is that they only offer Intel processors with their computers. But some say that could change as early as this spring. From this News.com article:
AMD’s antitrust lawsuit might have put pressure on Intel and Dell’s alleged sweetheart pricing deals, which both companies have denied.
[If] Dell were to finally adopt AMD chips[,] most analysts had thought the Opteron server processor would be first on the list. AMD’s advantage over Intel is more pronounced in multiprocessor servers with dual-core chips, whereas few PC users need all the performance that either company delivers.
So if this is true, it looks like Dimension desktops and Inspiron desktops might not get the AMD processors right away. But still, it would be a start.
