Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

"I just do not understand why manufacturers like Dell, HP, and the like do not design and ship both laptops and desktops with multiple ARM processors"

For the same reason they don't ship linux as the preinstalled OS on their machines....They don't have the b***s to take risks

Each revolution is risky and it can be a fail, so why not mass produce cheap computers in China and sell them for thousands of dollars in the west? After all the new capitalism is all about making money and not about making new technologies for the benefit of the mankind.
