RE: Well done EU!
They made it difficult for AMD to compete, if they increase their prices it will help AMD compete. But they won't raise their prices because that would be stupid. They have easily enough cash in the bank to soak this up.
Made it difficult to compete? AMD made it impossible for me to purchase an AMD based Notebook/Netbook without a BroadCom wireless card! you talk about choice, AMD and their cohorts gave me no choice and as such I ran to Intel for what I wanted - who is to blame for that? or am I going to be abused by AMD fanboys that apparently *I* have the problem for daring to run a non-Windows operating system on a Laptop/Netbook?
