    They would be better served with the AMD apu series for $50 but I bet intel is basically giving these away to avoid AMD getting into those value machines.

    They've been in the lead for so long that the good ol' hybris got them.

    And no competition. I don’t expect AMD will be able to take a very big piece of the notebook cake.
