Re: AMD or Intel
Speaking outside of the efficiency of them, and the designs and such, I prefer Intel to AMD. I always have.
So far I have only had 1 computer failure from Intel, and I am not sure that had anything to do with the processor. AMD though 4 for 6 on the processor side. 4 laptops powered by AMD that had a processor failure (replaced the processor and put in AS5 and was good to go again). they were all from different companies (Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, and Gateway), so it wasn't a design problem. It was more like the heat killed them, but that is the price for affordability.
IBM laptop and HP laptop (junk when started, everything is branded now).
78 K20. 400SBC Dual Quads, Muncie 4 speed, NP 205, Dana 60's at both ends with 4.11 gears.
