i really wish amd competed at the low end. i wish arm had competition at their medium end (workstation systems). we are, from what i can see, 100% dependant on intel's goodwill in the sub $500 pc market.
im a huge second-hander. there's still next to no amd kit available. intel's volume is vast. that defines more tham anything what affordable compute is available. also arm is inept & has never ever been vaguely capable; snapdragon, the best, has 1/5th the platform x86 does, shit ass tiny pcie and usb and others.
