Jun 14th 2009 5:57PM You're all very bad economists- please never try and contribute to a discussion in the free market. You're approaching this from AMD and the consumer's perspective but not the retailer or Intel's? Why don't AMD pay the retailer MORE to drive prices down, or enhance manufacture methods to compete better, in this case? The consumer and the retailer would benefit as the retailer could offset price of the product from the 'bribe' and the consumer would get it cheaper. Want AMD? Buy direct or from a retailer who will stock AMD?Jeez, Louise- and you people call ME an idiot. Read Wealth of Nations, how about?
Jun 14th 2009 5:52PM I seriously don't get a problem with the reflection, and I love the screen- it's one of the reasons I chose the new Macbook and love playing Eve Online on it too. Everything looks awesomer :P
Jun 3rd 2009 1:31PM Same as now... you kick it.
May 13th 2009 6:45AM I'm sick of the EU trying to stifle competition like this. If AMD cannot compete on the same levels as Intel, who are the EU to step in and fine them extortionate amounts of money which will inevitable end up lining the coffers of Members of the European Parliament and Quangocrats across the European Commission?Even if Intel & retailers were colluding, the resulting action should have been a greater push in marketing, distribution and effectiveness of AMDs technology- there are plenty of venture capitalists ready to lend a buck or two towards future tech.

Apr 13th 2009 5:08PM Cheers guys I love the childish remarks (read: "aw that's cute you think you know economics and something about the global free market failing). Wrong.The global free market, as you call it- was already regulated but just badly, inefficiently and over-governed (see: FSA vs. Bank of England debacle). Shit regulation caused this, not lack of it.To address the point about the cartel/oligarchy- my point is not one founded in extremism to the point where I don't understand the telecommunications industry (after all, I worked in it). A light touch for consumer protection is always encouraged; but mandating businesses just hinders them- money just travels a different way. A light nudge is always best, rather than huge socialist tax-blowing measures. Once again (FSA vs. Bank of England debacle).
Apr 13th 2009 9:42AM This is ridiculous and makes a mockery of the free Market. Suppliers should choose which services they wish to offer. You don't see the EU mandating McDonalds to hand out Burger King menus or vice versa. If the consumer wants it they can source a provider or choose the correct plan. As one poster notes, the cost will be passed on to everyone- not just the user.Scrap the EU!(love from London, England)
