What I'm thinking is that AMD has faster more efficient processors than
Intel at the moment. As to laptops, I custom built myself a desktop a
few years ago and it still meets my needs so I don't have any
suggestions about that.
I will state for the record that my desktop is built around an AMD 6
core chip, but I didn't buy it because AMD chips were better than Intel,
at the time they weren't, however that particular chip maximized the
bang for the buck, so I was willing to deal with a slightly slower less
