Which one of my computers?
by mdulcey / September 15, 2005 10:02 PM PDT

The one I'm typing this message on has an AMD Turion ML-28 (1.6 GHz Athlon 64 for notebooks). My main desktop system has an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ (2.13 GHz, 266 MHz FSB). I won't include a full catalog, but I do also have an old beige G3 with a 300 MHz G3 PowerPC CPU, probably made by Motorola.

AMD 64/ Intel Celeron/ Intel Celeron

Main desktop AMD Athlon 64 2.2 GHz
Secondary desktop Intel Celeron 2.8 GHz.
Laptop Intel Celeron 2.2 GHz.
Several old computers, mostly not in use except for my PII(?)333 MHz (occasionally in use - mainly for old files that I look at - but don't find worth transferring).

I will never go back to pentium. I don't care how they're clocked. AMD is faster, period.

amd from the git-go
by jimlowry98 / September 15, 2005 10:40 PM PDT

I have 7 computers in my home. All but one are AMD home built clone machines. The other is a Dell 1200 mhz with an intel processor.

Two are AMD 2200 machines and 4 AMD clones are all less than 500 mhz. They have small hard disk and are running special stuff such as Oracle, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Linspire.

AMD has always given slightly more bang for the buck and has worked well for me.

My next machine will be an AMD X64 machine running the new Windows release with SATA drives, one of whick is a 10000 rpm 'fast' drive.

I have an intel P4 3.2Ghz in a Dell.
My wife has an AMD 800Mhz that has sucked wind ever since we got it -- of course, it could be something other than the processor; it is an old Gateway about 5 years old and has more problems than my grandfather.
