Yeh, it seems Intel main competitor is ARM processor, not AMD.

How is Intel doing in wireless business ? How much percentage of the revenue is coming from wireless business because PC business wont outperform the market in future.

"Intel has a pretty large debt" "large" ? Really ? I don't think so. They actually have billions in cash on hand. What do you think their debt is ? If they have some debt, it's only because interest rates are so low right now.

(cont'd) The cost of packaging is now as much as 40 % of a Application Processor unit. With proprietary low cost packaging technology Intel can very well halve that cost and sell its AP at a discount so as to finally break into the Mobile market but still maintain its traditional margin for X86 CPUs.

Wait till INTC breaks into Mobile with FinFET ( 30 % lower power consumption ) and novel low - cost packaging

Intel's debt to equity ratio is 0.15. Debt is being managed very well by Intel.

Even so, Apple is in much better shape than Intel. Intel has a pretty large debt.
