* Dell breaks Intel monopoly?

In hardware, Dell's let slip: no longer just an Intel shop.

That's right - you can soon expect consumer-level PC's from Dell that have AMD processors.

The Dell-AMD deal may be a blow to Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel, which is hamstrung by a glut of PC chips and weaker sales. The world's largest chipmaker has been cutting prices on its PC chips to rid itself of excess inventory.
Before the announcement, which had been speculated in the financial community and the press, Morgan Stanley analyst Mark Edelstone wrote in a research note: "It should have a negative impact on Intel and it could be a large offset to the expected benefits from Intel's restructuring efforts."
AMD, which has become a more formidable competitor to Intel, has been expanding its manufacturing capacity, a sign that it expects to be shipping more chips. Its chief goal is to put itself in position to supply 33% of the global microprocessor market by 2008.
