For the Dell/AMD doubters

Not that I would buy this myself, but I include this for those still casting doubt on how serious Dell is about going AMD.
Received in the mail today at my office a Dell mass mailing trumpeting the AMD option. No mention of Intel anywhere on the card:

New Dell(TM) Demensions now available with AMD (TM) Athlon (TM) Processors.
In big letters: "It's all about CHOICE."

Dell Dimension C521 desktop
A quiet, space-saving system, customized to meet your needs.
$479

Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 processor 3200+
Genuine Windows XP Home edition
Windows Vista (TM) capable

512MB shared DDR2 SRAM
80GB SATA hard drive
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics CPU
16x DVD-Rom Drive
QuietCase technology helps ensure quiet operation
Integrated 10/100 Ethernet
1-year limited warranty, 1-year on-site service
1-year hardware warranty support

  2. This is kinda old news. It's been known for over a month that Dell was going to start using AMD in some of their systems. :)

    Ahhh mais je t'offre mais sincere sympathy. Dieux ne t'a pas fait hommage quand il a decider de te coupler avec le plus petit p*nis imagineable. C'est correct car il n'a pas arrete l'a. Il t'a aussi couple avec le plus petit cerveau de tous les especes dans le royaumes des animaux.

    Seriously, this thread is garbage and the poster has just lost all credibility... WHO CARES???

    Post this on AMDNews' Forums or something.
  4. Please guys, enough with the translators. :P

    I am going to clarify my position on Dell: They are GREAT for super cheapo systems, and maybe laptops. Otherwise it's better to build it yourself.
  5. Well, the configuration ...sucks
