    "already stressed and struggling supplier was heavily impacted by a rapid short term demand meaning Customers were unable to get their orders fulfilled in a timely manner and distributed tonusers before the quarantine affected the majority of the planets businesses".

    It's a shame but as an IT admin I wouldn't be looking to bring in AMD laptops if the business is heavily invested in Intel. Simply because if the laptop plays up then i can't just pop over to their desk to resolve.

    This could have been a phenomenal boon for AMD but the R3K laptops were just so weird and seemed artificially made to fail requirements checks (weird screens, weird IO, odd design choices) and R4K laptops which seem to have all that sorted and performance to boot are too late to the supply chain.
