Default Dell isnt so bad

Well for those of you worried about AMD dying with the release of Conroe (it wont but......) AMD should be bringing in some money from dell's servers now.

AMD still has the server business so lets hope they put the money to counter the Conroe!

All we need is Microsoft to recommend AMD over Intel, and everybody's happy!

I really don't like dell. They are evil.

I had a contest, whoever could get this dell PC open got a cookie. It took someone 10-15 minutes to get it open

but it will make them better than what they are. Xeon's are not very good compared to Opterons.
