Re: AMD gains marketshare for CPUs
Truth is, a low end E300+ CPU is all most people need.
They will read email, watch youtube and update facebook, type a few papers for school or do their taxes on it. Most people's computing tasks are awfully easy and the worse they'll get for having a slower PC is wait a little bit on some tasks.
For most people, the entry level computers of today are already too powerful. At that point, cost is everything and AMD is cheaper.
As the universe is curved, there cannot be a straight answer...
