The thing is, the only reason that you see that, is the minimal amount of competetion thats left because of AMD. I am sure intel wants nothing more than to crush AMD into bankruptcy, which they try to do vs dell.
Capitalism is only good if there is more than one product, remember that.
There are plenty of reasons to bash on dell, anti-trust, low quality stuff(internal and external), exorboraint upgrade prices, their support of outsourcing jobs to other countries...
