    So far there seem to be two major companies leveraging AMD for their chipsets. HP and Toshiba.
    HP can suck a giant cock based on their practices and I've had stellar luck with all of the Toshiba laptops for business and personal use.

    So I'm going to continue with the Toshiba lines.

    If I had to do it all over again .... probably this one.

    Toshiba Satellite C55D Laptop - 15.6" LED Backlit Screen, AMD Quad-Core A8 Processor 2.0GHz, 8GB Memory, 750GB Hard Drive, AMD Radeon R5 Graphics, DVDRW, Window 8.1

    Intel has decided to spend $300M of your money (its customers) to increase positions for women (and other minorities). They will work with Anita Sarkeesian's Feminist Frequency (the woman who blamed mass shootings on masculinity). I want Intel to understand that MILLIONS of men are waking up to the lie of feminism; that know that women want "equality" in high-paying positions but completely ignore occupations like mining which are hard, painful, and dangerous. And they try to achieve these equal outcomes through corporate alliances, such as the faustian pact you've made.

    Men who recognize that feminism is about female privilege know that women have equal opportunities today. Spend our money so you can artificially change outcomes will not endear yourself to all that many, but it will alienate you from your core customer base. MGTOWs, MRAs, PUAs, whatever you want to call us - awakened men- know what you are upto. We have positions as journalists, as managers, in hardware, in retail; we are everywhere. And we know that you are advantaging women over men rather than operating a true meritocracy.

    No one who is awake buys your cover story that this is just about giving equal opportunities. Equal opportunities are there today (unless you are doing something we don't know about). I look forward to recommending alternatives to Intel every where I go.

    "Customer dollars will go towards funding social agendas as opposed to meritocracy"
    This is not necessarily a bad executive decision by Intel. With the laws being what they are, the federal agencies, judges and juries being mostly made of women and feminist manginas, it's a pay now or pay later for any big corporation CEO. Walmart had elected the Pay Later option:
    Walmart To Pay More Than $11.7 Million To Settle EEOC Sex Discrimination Suit

    Now, you may think that Intel is paying more now than Walmart did pay later. But you can't simply compare the $300 million to the $11.7 million. First, most of that $300 million is probably salaries. Assuming the women they hire are 10% less effective than the men Intel could have hired instead. So, the loss is only $30 million (i.e. Intel could have gotten the same value out of men costing them only $270 million). Still higher than $11.7 million. But salaries at Intel are much higher than at Walmart. So, an EEOC investigation would have resulted in more like a $23 million fine. Add then the costs to the brand, with many manginas, once such a fine is made public and reported by the media, who would switch to competitive products.

    It's hard to judge the decision without knowing what actual projections were used to make it.

    It's kind of the same decision faced by a small business owner when a female worker accuses a male worker of sexual harassement. Even if the small business owner is 100% convinced the woman is lying, odds are, he will fire the male worker anyways, to avoid being sued for "allowing sexual harassement to continue".

    Whenever you are working for a large corporation, you are paying for this system, since, whether the senior executives chose the pay now or pay later option, part of your productivity is set aside for such a payoff. Whenever you are working for somebody else, small business or large corporation, you are also paying for it in less job security. For some people, the benefits of such jobs (and I am not just talking about material benefits) outweight those costs. For others, striking it on their own, or with a small company employing fewer than 20 employees (those are exempt from equal opportunity laws, and can employ 100% male workforce) is the better option.

    For the reference about the 20 employees limit, see Federal Laws Prohibiting Job Discrimination: Questions And Answers

    This is the classic MRA vs. MGTOW dilemma. When rivers start rising and threaten to flood the streets and houses, MRAs start stacking sand bags in order to block the floodings. MGTOWs (at least the level 4 ones) simply say "Fuck it, I am moving to higher ground". Sure, we may not find in the higher ground all the amenities we used to have downtown. But at least we don't have to go through the back breaking effort of stacking sand bags, with uncertain results.
