Where is the option for "Whatever offers the best performance for me at the time of purchase"?
This was my exact question when I saw the Poll options. It's simply not a complete list of answers. Because some people may just choose not to select an answer because the answer they truly want isn't available. I can entirely see the point being made by folks about this becoming a flame war thread. The short list of Poll options forces division.
For the record, I chose "Intel" simply because in TODAY's market I bought Intel. Next year though, I could very well go with AMD (as I've done in the past). Frankly I've owned more AMD cpus than I have Intel. It's all about performance for me.
