I suppose it wouldn't hurt to fill out the application.
But I ended up just making that clear in my application.
I would assume that for this to really be an effective group of advisers Intel will want a diverse group of people.
Graphic Design, IT, Sales, Enthusiast, Basic Consumer Computing, etc.
They will need some people from all their markets to be able to really do this(Assuming its not just helping people but also giving feedback)
Even if it is just for basic consumer advice, more experience(And diverse experience) is still a very important thing.
Were I an average consumer, I wouldn't want someone who can just build a computer helping me, I would prefer someone who actually knows something about what im going to be doing with my computer.
