That's basically what I've been typing.
you're labeled a fanboy if you start raving about a particular company like a lunatic and you go out of your way to tear down the competitor.
You mean, like you just did? "netburst sucks wet ass, and no one should buy anything based on it, if they have a choice." You say that as if it's an accepted fact, when for the few Intel fans here, it just isn't. If I were offered to trade my system for a system identical to my own but which had an Athlon 64 3200+ for the processor, I would turn it down. Does that blow your mind since, I have a processor which is "readily accepted" to "suck wet ass?" Here's a big one for you -- it's a Dell, and I like it.
I'll admit, I've harped on AMD a little bit, there's reasoning to my preferences in corporation. I've harped on Intel (Pentium D and the Prescott). I've harped on Microsoft (Windows Networking, product pricing, Windows resource management). I like every one of these corporations (yes, even AMD). Hector Ruiz is something of a personal hero to me. But I just happen to like Intel more. Why is that such a facking problem? Is it surprising to you all that I really dislike Sony? Do I even need to list off why?
take a deep breath, relax, and remember it's just silicon . . .
That's ridiculous. You're basically saying, "You're a fanboy if you do this this and that, netburst sucks, just calm down and get along!" Do you realize the ridiculousness of that premise? Once again, I ask, how do I qualify as a fanboy other than, "I like Intel?"
PS: Respectfully, Logan[TeamX], I don't want this thread to get canned. If you want to maintain the AMD vs. Intel debate, PM me. I've got a beef with just about every one of your points, but I'm not going to challenge them here.
