that involves an opinion. Both Intel and AMD make great processors. There is no hard or factual evidence on either. I've always had great luck with AMDs and I've been building PCs since the early 90s. Some people swear by Intel.
I know this is not the answer you wanted, but it's just like everything electronic. Some fail, most work perfectly.
can you give a little help to a computer neanderthal? i'm looking to move up from my general dynamics vr2 gobook to another laptop and i was wondering about which processor i should get the i7 from intel or the amd a8 i have had a bad run of luck w/ intel in pcs and can't find anything bad about amd in either the laptop or pc format
thanks for the help
