AMD, Toshiba Picking Out Dishes Together Again

Toshiba will be using AMD processors in their laptop computers again. Look for them to apppear soon in an entry level machine available in America and Europe.

Toshiba stopped using AMD chips in laptops around 2001 -- something that was highlighted in court documents when AMD launched an antitrust suit against Intel almost two years ago.

AMD alleged that Toshiba dropped the use of its chips after receiving a "very substantial" payment from Intel. Toshiba was receiving "market development funds" from Intel worth about $25 million to $30 million per quarter, and those would be jeopardized if it used AMD chips, the lawsuit alleged.

Hmm. If Intel would like to mail me a pound of twenties, I could be convinced not to buy an AMD chip too. I'm honest, but reasonable.
