AMD AMD chief executive Hector Ruiz said Wednesday that Apple will eventually use its microprocessors alongside those from Intel. Ruiz made the comments during a dinner speech at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, according to Bloomberg. "Everybody wants choice," he said, adding that rival Intel's practices have stifled the PC industry's growth. "Knowing Apple, why would they want to be held hostage like everyone else has been?"

I'm not sure where you found that config at that price (didn't see anything matching on Pricerunner), but you should do a side by side comparison of the two and also take into account OS cost, weight, etc. of the two.

Who cares if you can find a laptop at that performance/price if it weighs 6-7 kg? As an example.
