That lawsuit was from around 10 years ago. When Intel were bribing Dell to refuse AMD chips. The practice ended as soon as the lawsuit was filed. It took 10 years to sort out. $1.2 billion was MORE than enough. Sure, it wasn't enough to make a dent in AMD's deficit. But don't try blame Intel because AMD ran up a deficit. Dual Cores and x64 R&D probably wasn't cheap.
AMD were market leaders until Core2. I used AMD, mainly, right up until that point and then I started using Intel and have ever since. I'm not so melodramatic as to refuse to use the market leader because of convoluted "morals" regarding a ten year old lawsuit. Some of us have children that age.
I find your likening of Intel to Insurance Companies and Banks to be absolutely hilarious
Insurance Companies are licensed theft. You are required by law to drive with insurance and therefore pay their premiums, and then they fight you tooth and nail to avoid paying out your claims, and the next year you must pay a premium again, and, if there's been a high volume of claims in your area, your premium goes up, regardless of whether you made a claim.
Banks take your money, use it, spend it and invest it but when it comes to giving you it back, or paying you interest, you get rock bottom rates. Or if you incur a bank charge, it's charged though the roof. They want your money, but they don't want to give you any at all.
Intel are like these two? Sorry, but I buy my CPU from a retailer and I expect and need nothing else of Intel. They bodged the Cougarpoint chipset and set aside a massive amount of money to fix the error, free of charge to the users.
If you don't want to buy Intel, so be it. No-one here should be trying to talk you into it. But I think you should grow up, oh, and you're not alone. There are many AMD fanboys who spout this same rubbish. I used to be a fanboy, but then I realised I was cutting myself off 50% of the market, and, I grew up.
