Intel "Intel announced yesterday that its upcoming low-cost/low-power CPUs code-named Silverthorne and Diamondville will be sold under a single brand once the products launch. The MID-centric product family will hereafter be known as 'Atom'. Consumers are obviously meant to associate the Atom brand with objects of very small size, though Intel "Quark" would have a certain ring to it."

Who wants an Intel processor anyways. This looks like it was written by a Junior executive of Microsoft who wants to increase computer sales and there by increase Vista licensing agreement sales. AMD is a better value. AMD is being put on more and more servers and is also on many desktops and laptops.

No, no they're not. AMD is loosing market share rapidly, and they're dying so fast, that the community is worried they might bail, leaving us only with Intel. As someone who has only ever purchased Intel chips, I can say that if AMD drops out, it will suck for the consumers.
