    They made 19% higher profits than last year so they are hardly on their last legs. Supposedly some investors and analysts were expecting more, which considering the market conditions was a little optimistic. This is purely the market reacting because they got the forecast wrong.

    I wouldn't attribute it to being caused by AMD's fierce competition straight away. Market slumps like this are not uncommon. Intel has been promoting Centrino so much that some people are tending to want to buy laptops now instead of "ugly" and immobile desktops.
