Re: using laptops for music
You must be referrinng to desktops, Kim, right?. I've seen some data as
well, comparing apples to apples (no pun intended) in mobile processor
technology, cache, performance, processor speed, etc...and Intel shows in
the lead. But AMD clearly has the lead in desktops. Also, regarding the
64bit stuff...who the heck has 64bit apps to use that technology? Do you?
Send me the articles that show that AMD is beating Intil in the mobile
processor space, showing the specs next to each other, etc. I am really
curious to see the data, not marketing or analyst fluff.
