I was just checking their sites for someone and noticed they only have pentium and celeron processors? I know they used to. Am I missing something?

From what I remember, only Compaq used AMD processors and look at them now.

The problem with AMD is that Intel is the more commonly known name. Therefore anyone who doesn't know much about computers will automatically want an Intel processor. In fact, most people don't even know that anyone other than Intel even makes processors. And, since only people who don't know much about computers buy Dell or Gateway, why would they build with an AMD processor when everyone wants Intel?

Dell is strictly an Intel reseller, selling only Intel chips. They never have and most likely never will sell anything with AMD.

Gateways used AMD, I thought they still did. Oh well.
