Could the two interested parties negotiate a compromise? In my mind that's
Google calling Intel, and they talk it over. That probably just
demonstrates how little I understand about who and what is involved.

But I ordered an HP Pavilion m6-1035dx. It appears the OEM's neglect of AMD
has meant they haven't "added features," which makes our job easy and
weakens Intel's negotiating position.

Happy to be proven wrong,
