This makes sense, I believe. If AMD does not make a difference from Intel, OEMs would simply buy from Intel. In the past i did have some laptop with AMD processor and the fan was super noisy working hard :-)
@Cryptoman, You know, it seems our experiences goes a long way when we talk about elcetronics, for some , they never experience any problem with AMD and for some INTEL may not be a good idea and I don,t really think there is anything manufacturers can do about it other than just take their quality control serious
I fould this article that provides a nice comparison between the two processor types.
From what I gather, it is difficult to conclusively stte that one is superior than the other. Both processors have an edge in performing particular tasks and in terms of their efficiency.
Having said this, I personally prefer Intel due to a bad experience I had with AMD in the past. Back then, I was terribly disappointed with the performance of my AMD machine compared to the Intel class that was running at the same clock speed. After noticing this huge difference in performance, I switched to Intel and never went back.
That was a long time though. Now, I would not mind giving a shot to AMD Phenom II.
"This seems more like a misconception that has hurt AMD's sales."
My Laptop is 32 bit machine, AMD Sempron processor prefer it to Intel system. I can tell you that my machine makes noise and generates too much heat --- that's conditioned it to 'Tabletop' instead of Laptop.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
