On the contrary, you should feel sorry for people who force their clients to support criminal corporations convicted of horrid market abuses. It's called not supporting crime. You should try it some time.
...and while sure, at this point in time in a benchmark, Intel can show an upper hand for max performance, at any given price point an AMD box will give the same or better subjective performance from the standpoint of an actual human being, who is utterly uninterested in PCMark or anything else. Except for the tiniest few people in the world who have unlimited funds to blow on a PC and actually give a sh1t about benchmarks, it doesn't matter in the slightest what CPU is actually in there. Sorry to burst your little bubble...but it just doesn't matter.
As for Apple being "the only tech company that contracts independent audits of their suppliers and manufacturers" - that may or may not be correct, I don't know. What I do know - beyond the shadow of a doubt - is that they're the only tech company that's ever *needed* to.
Your reality distortion field is working over time. Wonder if it's transmissible by oral intercourse from the original source - that would explain braindead Apple zombies like you and Swash.

I'm having a hard time agreeing with that. The Bulldozer's per-core performance is terrible regardless of threads, and the power consumption is frankly alarming for what mediocre performance you get.
If I was your customer, that WOULD matter to me. Things like that DO matter. However I guess if I was in your place, padding my profit margins by throwing in AMD garbage would be tempting. I would just have to look right into their eyes when they asked me about Intel and flat out lie to their face...
I agree with the Apple and Takin bashing though. Keep it up :D

Bulldozer is trash.
Yes, performance actually matters, particularly in forums such as these.
Yes Intel offers the best performance per dollar across the widest range of products.
You are still a joke.
