    Dell Inc has informed its Taiwan contract makers of plans to develop devices based on Advanced Micro Devices Inc's microprocessors, and these suppliers are awaiting orders for global shipment, the Economic Daily News reported, citing industry sources.

    These suppliers are ready developing and arranging the logistics of such devices for shipment to Dell, it added.

    Its not about how good Dell pc's are.. Dell is the single largest supplier of computers in the world. This will give AMD a huge boost, and more money to pool into creating great processors.

    I've been waiting for a LONG time to see this! Good news... I'm not going to buy a Dell, but there are millions of people who do, and maybe they'll get some more PC knowledge and not go: "What kind of Pentium do you have in your PC?"...
