    A 2400+ will suit you fine for today's apps.

    Neither is better or worse, both of them have their plusses and their minuses.

    Of course, the major plus for AMD is incidentally the major minus for Intel; namely that your $200 gets an AMD that pisses all over a $200 Intel.

    Being minimally biased here, Intel understandably dominates the consumer processor market (in all probability, the enterprise sector, too), notably due to their reputation in supplying consumers with processors that are renoun for defeating their counterparts, namely AMD and their false naming schemes. For instance, AMD&#39;s recent Athlon 64 product range was christened the 2800+, 3000+, 3200+, 3400+ and then the ... 3700+?

    On what basis was it given this name? Was it an effort to, perhaps, by AMD, to baffle the common processor purchaser who is probable to be considerably computer-illiterate, but simultaneously populates the vast majority of the consumer processor market. From AMD&#39;s perspective, the answer is no; they persist in thinking negatively in that the 3700+&#39;s performance is to be comparable to that of an Intel Pentium 4 ~3.6GHz which is highly doubtful.

    This example accounts for just one of the numerous marketing errors that AMD is guilty of comitting allowing Intel to grasp the lead, with ease.
