Google goes back to Intel

Remember we told you there were chipset problems with Google's AMD boxes? There is more to it than that, the really big news is the boxes will have a Dell logo on them.

Now, these are so far from vanilla boxes it isn't funny at all. I hear Intel put a ton of work to custom design systems for Google. Dell's involvement seems to be as an assembler, nothing more. But it seems that having board friends in high places doesn't hurt when the money flows.

DDR2 has been cheaper and makes the biggest part of the cost, so AMD loses
