Promising Sign for Computer Geeks-AMD is trying to boost production by farming out some work to Taiwanese chipmaker United Microelectronics Corporation. AMD is the largest alternative to Intel in the computer chip market, but often struggles to make enough product. I sold a lot of AMD-based machines when I ran my computer store; a check with ubergeek site Tom's Hardware Guide shows that they are still making good products. Tom's gives good marks to the Duron 1300 as a better bargain computer bet versus the Celeron while Intel was outperforming AMD's higher-end systems. In lower-end systems, you can save a good chunk of change without sacrificing quality with an AMD-based system.
