    I like them both at different times.
    P4 if you're looking higher end or Athlon xp if you're looking cheaper, like celeron price range.

    AMD = Cheaper but better, unless you buy an Athlon 64 FX like I did, then it's AMD = Better and $$$

    If I'm buying it, AMD. Otherwise, Intel.

    Realistically AMD beats the crap out of intel in alot of areas. There pipeline architecture is set at 12 cylces compared to 20 so it takes less time to process instructions thus making it a quicker processor. Although I'm using a P4 3.0 right now, I still like AMD better and DO notice a difference in performance.

    I voted AMD.

    But Apple > AMD (Apple's new chips are made by IBM IIRC).

    All I used to own were AMD K6's and 1 AMD slot A 700Mhz Athlon, which I still use as a Win2k server.

    My main workstation is still a PIII 1Ghz which I've never had a problem with. Most AMD's anymore arent as cheap compared to Intels as they used to be.

    The AMD 64 wipes the floor with Intel as far as memory goes. However, the P4 3.* Extreme still surpases the AMD 64 in many many benchmarks. Check out some articles on www.tomshardware.com
