    Good news!

    So much for all the doom and gloom forecasts the "experts" were predicting about low PC sales lasting forever.

    I am not seeing this at my company. They are not buying anything.

    How is the 1.something billion dollars that Intel must give to AMD affecting them?

    Not surprising with all the new chip releases, along with Win 7 and how popular they are proving to be.

    You know how you search through you pockets looking for a coin for the parking meter and finally find one right at the bottom of your pants pocket and it's got bits of lint on it?, Well the lint represents the $US1.25bn settlement figure.

    The cash will however keep AMD's head above water for a little longer.
