I'm not sure where the power/performance/price ratio is at currently, but
it wasn't that long ago purchasing an intel was a much better deal long
term.  It was something like it took a year and half of an AMD and intel
cpu idling to draw even in total price all the while having a much greater
performance potential with Intel.  I say this as someone who hopes AMD will
succeed.  There is much more to it than just raw upfront cost.
