Spot on Intel is great in apps, because of the high clock speed/pipeline and the Hyper Threading

Regardless of the poll, i would advise going with Intel. Yeah, AMD wins in gaming, but what about those time where you got work to do or playing some music or even downloading stuff. Intel wins as a multi-purpose processor.

I think it is stupid when you get 2 CPU's, one performs slightly better, and then people say "the other one sucks"
AMD and Intel both make great CPU's, but it all comes down to preference

a lot of these debates just end up with everyone taking one side, their posts completely biased and peolpe flaming each other just because they don't share the same opinion

both CPU's are excellent, and it comes down to preferance
