AMD "If you're looking for notebook power on the cheap and you're not too keen on either using Intel's integrated graphics or paying for a higher-performing, NVIDIA-made workaround (i.e., Optimus), then there's an obvious alternative mobile platform for you: AMD/ATI. AMD is gaining steam in the mobile space due to a combination of low cost and its ATI Radeon graphics solution, with Reuters reporting that the company will better than double the number of design wins this back-to-school season compared to a year ago."

I want to see Apple switch to AMDs in their laptops. Intel chips have proven too hot and the i*’s are turning into a joke. Apple must realise that just as with PowerPC before they’re become trapped by a power/heat problem that it doesn’t look like Intel are going to solve anytime soon.


Actually in my experience the AMD chips run hotter. Apple's issue is poor design in the cooling portion of the laptops, and they would have the same issue if they had AMD chips instead. Of course I have no numbers or anything, just my personal experience.
