Dell and AMD

A few years ago Dell started selling only machines with Intel processors. I have been a fan of AMD processors so this bothered me. From everything I have read, the Athlon 64 is superior to the latest Pentium 4 Prescott. There is more word that Dell is reconsidering their decision to go exclusively with Intel. This isn’t the first time Dell has talked about selling machines with AMD processors. On prior occasions, these statements have been used primarily to get concessions from Intel.

Hopefully this time it will be different. Maybe I will see Dell machines with AMD inside soon.
