It is a personal preference both companies have always and will continue to go back and forth. Currently Intel is in the lead with it's Core 2 Duo Architecture. However AMD at the same time that Intel is now enjoying it's lead is working n a project which AMD promises will blow Intel out of the water, so. Personally I am a AMD guy, I believe their processors go above and beyond their advertised capabilities, and they are very strong and reliable.
I'm trying to decide between the HP dv9000t and the dv9000z laptops. Any thoughts on the AMD or Intel processors being better?
