Up to Two Million AMD-Based Dell Computers Coming – Analysts

Dell Inc., the world’s largest maker of computers, may shift significant part of its business to
microprocessors from Advanced Micro Devices, an analyst said in a report. The initial batch of
AMD central processing units (CPUs) acquired by Dell will be up to 2 million, the report from Bank of
America reportedly said.

“Dell has ordered between 1 million and 1.2 million desktop computers with Advanced Micro
Devices processors and about 800 thousand notebooks,” Bank of America financial analyst Sumit
Dhanda said in a report, a story at Cnet News.com claims. According to the assumptions of the
analyst, the numbers would mean that the world’s top supplier of personal computers is awarding
AMD 15% to 16% of its desktop business and 18% to 19% of its notebook business.
