    [news=http://img.dell.com/images/global/brand/ui/homelogo/en.gif]Kevin Rollins, chief executive of Dell, has squashed another round of rumors that Dell may be considering AMD processors in future products. "We really have no change in our stance," said Rollins in the firm's earnings release conference call, according to MarketWatch. "We've had great success (with Intel chips). It's pretty clear that our customers are happy with our technology," Rollins is quoted.

    The executive answered another question about the relationship with AMD with what has become Dell's standard answer about AMD in recent years: The company always is testing other technologies, he said. However, at this time, there would be no reason to switch the current [Intel] strategy.

    No, really you're wrong, the average person has never heard of amd. For dell to switch from a well known brand to something the average computer user has never heard of would result in a loss.

    And what, pray tell, are we basing this theory on?

    The three major retailers here all carry AMD CPUs.
    Not to mention all the little mom & pop shops.
    So I'm thinkg the majority of PC users here know about AMD.
    Can't vouch for any other cities.
