AMD Processors...?

I finally ordered my first comp with an AMD, and was wondering what others experiences were. I usually go with intel, but the price difference was pretty large between AMD and Intel. I ordered a Dell laptop with an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL56, 1 Gig RAM, with an ATI Radeon Xpress1150 256MB HyperMemory, and an 80 Gig HDD. Will I be able to run any type of CAE/CAD/Modeling program with this equipment or will that have to be done on my PC? Thanks in advance.

nothing wrong with amd.

some benchmarks will show that amd is comparable and better in some cases than intel.

however, all my machines are intel as i've noticed they are a little better for video processing and an intel processor usually runs cooler and demands less voltage than the amd counterparts.

i think you'll be fine. nothing wrong with saving a few bucks on a cheaper computer.

I'm a huge AMD fan, and until the Intel Core2 came out AMD had the performance crown. Sad to say, Intel's got the top performance now. So if you're looking at Core2, it's the way to go. Second to that, AMD (x64 Athlon or Opteron) without a doubt to any of Intel's other procs.

Its sad when you've been an AMD guy for year's and Intel takes the performance crown back.
And AMD can't even touch intel now, Core2Duo is amazing in terms of performance there's no shame in liking the clear winner here.

AMD and Intel are gonna end up like nVidia and ATI, going back and forth with the performance crown, I just don't think that they'll do it as frequently as nvidia/ATI.

It's Core2Duo now, within a few months, AMD will drop something new that's on par, or better than the Core2...

AMD is the best....

The geeks that build computers use AMD. The stores that sell computers sell Intel, just for name recognition.

yea AMDs are good, but they are not the best anymore, for gaming and sheer performance Intels Core 2 Duo is better by a good bit. Anyone who says it isnt has no clue.

I don't really know anything about dual core processors cuz I'm still rockin the single core but I noticed AMD feel better for games and apps but Intel seems better for the regular junk.
