It's a cold day in... Dell

The inclusion of AMD processors in Dell machines has been the topic of much, often heated debate over the last few years. Many swore it could/would never happen, but the rumors persisted. I guess that makes today's announcement from Dell a landmark event.
Depending on the model, customers can select dual-core technology such as Intel Core 2 Duo processors and, for the first time, AMD AthlonTM 64 X2 dual-core processors to enable streaming music, watching movies and calculating spreadsheets simultaneously from the same PC. The new Dell Intel dual-core systems can also deliver better performance while drawing less power than previous-generation Intel products.
There are four new models total (two AMD based), but none of them are available on the website yet.
