AMD is back where it counts. I have an Intel machine @ work so im no hater. And my Mac air is intel, but I'd love my next air to have AMD w Retina display. If I need a serious work done I have a CPU w/ dedicated gpu which is the best. I don't alway need the fastest in my air, so this would even out the video discrepancies (not that intel hasn't done a good job) but this old be better in my opinion.
