Keller is an industry veteran who brought plenty of experience to Apple's mobile processors. He was previously vice president at P.A.

I've had AMDs in my personal computers since the K6-2. They always seemed to have a performance vs price sweet spot.

However, its been a bit hard to justify not having an Intel recently.
