AdminSecret's Laptop Buying Guide

8. You Shouldn’t Buy AMD.

I know, I know… this one hurts a little bit. I was as much of an AMD fanboy as the next guy back when the Athlon XP was crushing anything Intel could put out. But times have changed, and if you look at the data, AMD chips just don’t make sense these days.

Don’t believe me? Well, how about the vendors building laptops? Lenovo, Dell, and Fujitsu don’t even bother to build machines with AMD chips. And vendors that do, such as HP and Toshiba, always offer Intel alternatives that perform just as well or better at the same price.

I hope AMD can comeback, but until they do, I’ll be buying Intel-based machines unless I find a shockingly good deal on an AMD laptop.
