    Default Whats the difference between an AMD and Intel processor?

    Im looking to buy a laptop soon and i wanted to know if there was a difference. In my opinion the intel is more known and many buyers buy intel computers because of that. Is AMD any different?

    I am running a duel core AMD laptop right now and I am perfectly happy with it and the price point. It really all depends on what you plan on doing with your laptop. If it is for general use such as email and web surfing and maybe some home work either process or would do you just fine. I would be more concerned about system memory and hard drive space at this point. If you are looking for a gaming laptop then you are going to pay some money either way.There are so many processors out there by each manufacturer that it is hard to say. I would look at what you are willing to pay for a laptop then based your search on what you get as a whole at that price point (processor, memory, hard drive size, USB ports, HD, screen size, etc).Either processor will most likely support your needs.

    The actual design of the processor is very different. But from a user's perspective, it doesn't matter. As far as performance goes, Intel is better on the low-power processors (laptops and netbooks). With desktops, Intel's processors are more powerful overall (AMD doesn't have anything that can compare to Intel's Core i7 line), but AMD's processors are cheaper for the power.
