If you buy a Mac you paying overpriced prices, to support Steve Jobs drug habit.
I've been saying that for years now! "Paying for his acid trips" is what I always said to be precise

Not even going to dignify that with an answer...
When people say this....it's generally an indication of whatever reason they may have is probably a joke...

You have ridiculous prices for macs and for what? Their 'cool' hippy *** designs? No thanks, give me a crappy beige case that'll do it's job for $1000 less

Aye, let's not turn this into an intel vs. amd vs. mac battleground people

The question was simply why AMD are able to competetively benchmark and perform with a higher clocked Intel processor, not which is better, we have a sticky for that . That article indeed went over the fine print nicely

It should be noted that Intel is giving up on the Netburst technology found in Pentium 4s now and are reverting back to an older, improved P3 architecture, which will perform more IPC. This has already been demonstrated in the Pentium Ms that you see running <2GHz.

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w
