Agreed. Alienware advertises Intel because they are paid by Intel to do so, and to not advertise AMD.

Mhm. The Dothan core is nice...I can't wait for the Yonah to come out. A dual-core mobile processor would be nice

And your evidence to back up your statement??? Alienware is a good company that builds excellent computers. They are VERY OVERPRICED, there is no doubt there, but their computers do not suck, they are quite good.

Alienware do dream PC's, from my point of view. They do PC's you would buy if you could have any for free.

To answer your question,

Alienware does use AMD's . . . you can choose one on all their gaming desktops (excluding a few) but if you're talking about why they dont advertise AMD, like everyone says, Intel has the big bucks to make them advertise Intel . . .

And BTW you can't even begin to compare and Alienware to a stupid Dell . . .
