Rumors: AMD Apple Laptop?

Is an AMD Apple laptop in the works? That's the rumor that DigiTimes Systems published yesterday. According to Digitimes, Taiwan component makers are seeing increased orders for a kind of capacitor to be used in an AMD-based Apple notebook.

In September, AMD CEO Hector Ruiz speculated that Apple and AMD might do business together. However, the article mentions that a number of motherboard makers doubt the rumors, "noting the performance advantage Intel currently enjoys over AMD, especially for the Core 2 Duo processor compared with AMD's present CPU lineup. AMD is also considered to have insufficient capacity, the makers added."
