I own a Pentium 4 processor and am wondering if I made a stupid choice. It's too late for me to return my computer but my curiousity is peaked. According to places like Arstech.com and other computer forums I've visited the P4 seems to be considered a joke. Signatures like "Intel inside idiot outside" aren't hard to spot. Are the AMD Athlon and XP processors really superiour in speed and performance? I don't understand how they can be since the P4 has the faster RDRAM and 400 mhz side bus. Is Intel like Bose and charging far more for far less?
