    Report says Dell might seek to acquire AMD

    This doesn't make much sense. As TR notes, the original Bloomberg report stated an acquisition was 'far-fetched' and somehow this became 'Dell Buying AMD!' via X-BitLabs... not to mention, Dell sold their manufacturing plants in 2008 to become a services company, and AMD are a design company.

    I think the rumor of Dell buying AMD comes from both being in Texas.


      I highly doubt Dell could even afford to puchase a company such as AMD. Dell has fallen from grace over the past 6 years, earnings are down, company has dropped from the top 4 in OEM sales. I just don't see this happening.
