At what price did you buy AMD?
Also, just out of curiosity, why did you pick that particular one?
My previous reply kind of states why - I believe in the company and working in the IT field, see the need for continued computer support and upkeep, regardless of how any business is doing. Also, being in the 3 main gaming consoles at the holiday season can't be bad.
Switching all the way to Apple just on the account of Vista is pretty strong hate there.
I don't know that hate is the proper term, but having used Windows since 3.1 and previously in my life owning Macs (Classic II, G3 iBook) - I felt it was time to move back to them due to all the massive headaches Vista was causing me at work - I was in the market for a laptop and didn't want to deal with Mac.
I prefer to wipe my drives and install Linux instead.
And that's fine, I had a Ubuntu box for a while - the problem is that I am also a photographer who post processes in Lightroom and Photoshop, Linux has Gimp, but it is not a replacement for either Lightroom or Photoshop.
