Apple switching to Intel? Why not AMD?

Well, Apple has moved to Intel's x86 platform. I personally don't get why they didn't jump on with AMD who already has a 64bit mobile processor. Slashdot has all the digs on it so head over there for the thread.
Now Apple is a true software company (technically they were a hardware company before due to all the custom hardware development). They get to go head to head with Microsoft and also now have to buy chips from Intel who sells to folks like Dell, HP, Toshiba, IBM, and others who buy more chips in a month then Apple all year. I don't know if this is brilliant or suicide. Good luck Apple, you have a rocking OS.
