Good for them...maybe now HP won't be the only company with the option for AMD or Intel.

It is true in a way, Intel has so many companies that use their chips, and I'd like it if I could have chosen wheter I wanted AMD or Intel w/ my Compaq. Of course I got stuck with the crappy celeron.

In the short term, this will probably be true. But, I think this will be only applicable for a time duration that it takes to build more factories.. Given the nature of these bloody lawsuits, I would presume AMD will have "enough" time to meet the demand, as estimated by them during the trial. Assuming the trial lasts longer than it takes to build new factories

@horndude

It depends on certain things to make the price go up, technically speaking the price should go down on products if more people buy them. But that doesnt happen sometimes, maybe that is why Intel chips are so expensive.... hmmm...

LOL!!! Microsoft is terrified by the competition from all of the "other" OS's out there!!! Netscape tried to stop the "browser bundling".........IE is still bundled!!! I actually hope AMD does get a bigger share of the CPU market...maybe the prices will come down a little...or not!

Ah, so this is why AMD announced their plans of obtaining half the market share in the next decade.

If IE wasnt bundled, how would people download netscape

Anyways, I am happy with this lawsuit.

But we have 3 proessor choices, AMD, Intel and VIA / Cyrix
