Influential semiconductor manufacturer, most notably for making x86 series of computer microprocessors for the well past its sell-by date, PC platform. Despite newer and potentially better architectures coming along, Intel continues to throw billions and billions at the same compromised to all hell, 1970s derived, archaic chunks of fan-encrusted kludge, with bolted on bells and whistles enough to keep it just ahead of the game, rather that get their heads together with all the other bigwigs, rip up the tattered old PeeCee blueprints, and put those billions into giving us a new, no compromises computer platform that we should have had 15 years ago.

my intel comp sux!

intel reports the hamburger will make you sick!
A CPU and motherboard manufacturer focussed mainly on tech rather than high clock speeds. While their processors are stronger than AMD processors, they are also quite a bit more pricey. If money's not a problem, then Intel is the way to go. I also recommend getting an aftermarket cooler as their stock fans aren't very good.
Man 1: I just got an Intel i7 920!!! I'm gonna tear through all my games and work!

Man 2: You realized you just spent about $300 on a quad-core when you could've gotten an AMD Quad-core CPU for like $100-$180?

Who gives about micro-electronics when the first tv ad this company made had a bus load of guys in pastel colored NBAC suits who'd leap out and start doing bad dance moves any where, any time, with no warning?

That's some shit to live up to, AMD.
